  Long Differences Essay -- Organized Person, Product or Topic

Contrast (Differences) Essay
Organized by Person, Place or Topic

In this long compare-and-contrast essay, you contrast just two people, places or topics
on three characteristics, going from least to most important.

Each "Difference" has two parts.

For instance, if I'm writing the New York's entertainment differs
from that of another city, I could write that
1) New York is is the home of Broadway and
2) is also the home of the some of the world's best classical music venues.

Because it is organized by the Person, Place or Topic, there are only four paragraphs:

1) The Introduction
2) The First Product, Person or Topic
3) The Second Product, Person or Topic 2
4) and the Essay Conclusion.
