Compare/Contrast Essay - Brainstorming

Recommended Posts

For our first try at a compare/contrast essay (we use IEW methods), I want to help gr. 9 ds ask himself questions about the American and French Revolutions. I can think of a few things:


* taxation frustration

* ideals of liberty and equality


* contrast leaders - Robespierre vs. Washington

* contrast levels of violence - personal vs. impersonal


Anyone have any other ideas I can add?


Thank you so much!

For my son (and for me, as well), the biggest comparison comes in assessing what happens *after* the revolution. On the one hand, you have brainy guys meeting in a room, a conquering general stepping down from power, careful attention to wording... On the other hand, you have the guillotine :tongue_smilie:
