The lecture begins describing that a T-Chart can be especially effective when writing a compare and contrast essay to better organize the ideas and details which may have been discovered after using the other prewriting activities such as brainstorming or freewriting on a compare and contrast topic. My lecture then moves on to describe the general layout of a simple T-Chart (topic: the advantages and disadvantages of living on campus) and then goes into further detail with another T-Chart (topic: contrasting high school and college regarding course schedules, homework load, and housing).
