Composing A Decent Comparative Essay On Islam Vs Science

A comparative essay is one that looks at the similarities and differences between two topics. You will need to look at the things that are similar about Islam and science and then think about the things that are different. Here are some great ways to ensure that you will write a decent paper.

  1. Draw a line down the middle of a sheet of paper vertically
  2. You will write everything that you can think about Islam and the similar or different attributer on the other side about science. If you find that one side is easy to fill out and you can’t find the same attribute for the other one, just leave the space empty. You can also put a line horizontally half way down. You can list the similarities on top and the differences on the bottom.

  3. Create an outline
  4. The next step after you brainstorm some ideas of similarities and differences, you will want to start developing your outline. It will help you start to build how you will be presenting the information that you are gathering. You should get an example outline to help you get an idea of what it should look like. It is best to write your outline in complete sentences so when it comes to writing your rough draft, you can just add the sentences in between. Add transitional phrases so that you will be able to link the main ideas together for a comprehensive piece.

  5. Develop your thesis statement
  6. Your thesis will be the main point of the paper. It will be what you will be working to prove. You will want to include your reasoning as well in your thesis statement.

  7. Writing the draft
  8. Turn your outline into a draft by adding a topic sentence, sentences proving the point, and sentences that explain the proof. This will be easier to do if you have a plan. You should not just start writing because then things get all jumbled up and hard to read.

  9. Editing process
  10. You will read through your rough draft sentence by sentence to make sure that the sentences make sense, that they say what you wanted them to say, that they are grammatically sound, and that they are free of errors. You should read through each sentence for itself and then also for the piece as a whole.
