Good Each paragraph contains a topic sentence that relates to the thesis statement. Good Writing is clear and sentences have varied structure. The writer has a very limited vocabulary. Fair The concluding paragraph makes a point about the subjects for comparison or contrast, but it does not unify or "wrap-up" the essay effectively. The conclusion contains an articulate closing argument. There are details, but they are not clear, specific, and vivid, or both subjects are not given roughly the same amount of space. The introduction is unclear and ineffective. Includes a vague thesis statement. Body paragraphs are well written with good transitions that align sentence structure and solid topic sentences. The conclusion or introduction is absent. Reasons and support The points to support comparisons and contrasts are definitive with clear and relevant and specific examples presented.
