  Long Similarities Essay -- Organized Person, Product or Topic

Comparison (Similarities) Essay
Organized by Person, Place or Topic

In this long comparison (similarities) essay, you compare just two people, places or topics
on three characteristics, going from least to most important.

Each "Similarity" has two parts.

For instance, if I'm writing about cellphone screen resolution, the first part might be the number of pixels and the second part color saturation.

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
4) and the Essay Conclusion.
