So to be fair, you describe both subjects dispassionately in the Main Body, saving your opinion for later.

But if you don't judge them in the Main Body, then where do you judge them? Well, you do it in the Conclusion, if indeed you judge them at all.

That brings us to the last feature. There are two alternative approaches to the Main Body of a Comparison-Contrast essay. The first is called Subject by Subject, and in it you have three paragraphs which deal with all three standards of comparison in regards to the first subject; then you have three more paragraphs which deal with the same three standards, but in regards to the second subject. You say everything you have to offer (in the Main Body) about the first subject before going on to the second subject. Essentially, you are splitting your Main Body into two supersections: one on the first subject, the other on the second subject.

The second approach to the Main Body is called the Standard by Standard approach (also sometimes called the Point by Point approach). In it, you have two paragraphs which deal with both subjects in regards to the first standard of comparison; then you have two more paragraphs which deal with both subjects in regards to the second standard of comparison; then lastly you have two more paragraphs which deal with both subjects yet again, but now in regards to the third standard of comparison. Whereas in the Subject by Subject approach you split your Main Body into two parts, here you are splitting it into three parts. Whereas in the Subject by Subject approach you said everything about the first subject before moving on to the second subject, here you say everything about the first standard of comparison before moving on to the second standard, and handle that second standard completely before moving on to the third.
