I just found this place and I would like to know if anyone can help me with this. I don't know what block organization and point by point organization is and it is hard for me to find it. Can anyone help me ? I am supposed to write a paper for english with this assignment for comparison and contrast after reading three essays. I need to know what these two organizations are to go any further though.

Comparison and contrast writing is usually organized in one of two ways which are called block organization and point by point organization. Using Internet and library sources, explain the differences, and then identify which kind of organization is used in each essay assigned for this week. Note that a writer will sometimes use both. Also, point out the transitional words and expressions which the authors use to maintain coherence. You must use the assigned essays in your answer, but you may also use examples from essays previously read. Give appropriate quotations and document your sources.

I found this excerpt on a site called http://www.athabascau.ca/courses/engl/353/essay.html

I hope it will help you.

Best wishes, Clive

There are two primary methods of organization .....: block and alternating. As the name implies, block organization requires that the writer first write about topic A, and then topic B: if you are writing about men and women, you would write your first half of the essay about men, and the second half about women. The important part of this approach is that you must be sure to create a transition between the two, otherwise you will have written two separate and unrelated sections—this is not an essay.

The alternating method, as it suggests, alternates point by point: you would write about men, then women, then men, then women and so forth. This can be a trickier approach because it is not just about one successful transition, rather, about numerous smooth transitions. The danger of this method is that the essay can sound choppy if you switch between them too often.
