Comparing with a Venn Diagram

- Think about two subjects that you need to compare and contrast.
- On a piece of paper, draw two overlapping circles (or ovals).
- Write one subject above the left circle and the other subject above the right circle.
- How are the subjects similar?
- How are the subjects different?

**How does a Venn diagram function when you compare and contrast?**

A Venn diagram is an illustration that uses circles to show the relationships among things or finite groups of things. Circles that overlap have a commonality while circles that do not overlap do not share those traits. Venn diagrams help to visually represent the similarities and differences between two concepts.

### Is Venn diagram and compare and contrast the same?

A VENN DIAGRAM is a graphic organizer that compares and contrasts two (or more) ideas. Overlapping circles represent how ideas are similar (the inner circle) and different (the outer circles). It is used after reading a text(s) where two (or more) ideas are being compared and contrasted.

**How do you start a compare and contrast introduction?**

Begin with a topic sentence that explains one area of comparison between your first subject and your second subject. For example, if your subjects are two different countries and your paragraph topic is political structure, you can start by broadly describing each country’s political processes.

## Is a rubric a formative assessment?

**What are the elements in a Venn diagram?**

Sets are represented in a Venn diagram by circles drawn inside a rectangle representing the universal set. The region outside the circle represents the complement of the set. The overlapping region of two circles represents the intersection of the two sets. Two circles together represent the union of the two sets.
