Athens and Sparta: Writing a Comparison/Contrast Paragraph Today we will take the information we gathered about the differences and similarities between Athens and Sparta and transform them into a well-written comparison/contrast paragraph. Before we do, however, let's take a look at a sample paragraph.
  

Notice that comparison-contrast paragraph includes a clear topic sentence that names two things and identifies whether they are alike, different or both, contains details that illustrate the similarities and/or differences, and uses signal words to emphasize these similarities and differences. You can see the steps to writing a good comparison-contrast paragraph below.

Now it's time for you to write your own your own comparison-contrast paragraph on Athens and Sparta. The assignment Athens and Sparta - Comparison/Contrast Paragraphwhich includes a list of signal words and an assignment checklist, can be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom. This assignment will be due Friday, May 13.
