A. An introduction which informs the reader about the topic, the texts and characters (if any) analyzed, and a strong thesis.
B. A body which provides at least three points of comparison. The points should be important, reveal a complexity of understanding, and explained the point well. Each body paragraph should show the skills we will be working on: They should be focused, explain their point clearly and ?show? or support each point with specific evidence. Quotes usually strengthen support. Make sure to interpret the quotes.
C. A conclusion
