Analyzing two different works of literature, art, and film can help you find what they have in common and what makes them different.

You can do this with: Books that have a similar theme, A book and a movie based on the book, Or an audio version of a text and the text itself.

You can also compare and contrast a work of fiction and a historical account of the same time, place, or person in order to gain an understanding of how the author of the work of fiction uses or alters history to add to their story.

In this lesson, you will compare and contrast two similar works in a slide presentation.

Using a slide presentation allows you to organize your analysis one step at a time.

The example in this lesson compares and contrasts two books by the same author.

You can choose any two works to compare, such as a book and a movie based on the book, or a poem and an article on the same topic.

Or you can use something your teacher assigns.
