How do i put this in a proper format on a compare and contrast essay? please help, thanks!!

ANSWER
(I) Introductory paragraph: establish the connection between (1) and (2). For example, you might start by saying something along these lines: “in today’s society, a feeling of hopelessness has become quite common, most especially among teenagers, who, for some reason, do not accept certain types of behavior.”

(II) Main body: here, you should develop the idea stated in the introduction; write out as many paragraphs as you need in order to get your point across:

(1) you may compare and contrast in each paragraph:
for example, you may elaborate on different behavioral patterns (people who try to be popular versus people who don’t); elaborate on the consequences;

(2) or you may choose to compare in the first few paragraphs and contrast in the last few; as you start your first draft, your “thoughts” (that is, the flow of thoughts) will naturally make that decision for you.

(III) Conclusion: write a paragraph by referring back to what you say in the Introduction and in the main body.
