What is a good formula for a compare and contrast essay?

I have to write one of these, and I need help organizing it and such.

Basic five paragraph essay format, Introduction, Three sentences about what you are comparing with examples. Within the next three paragraphs, talk in specifics. They are alike in color but not shape could be one paragraph. Stick to one theme per paragraph. Follow those with conclusion paragraph that re-states but in different wording your introductory paragraph.

When having to compare A and B, most people try to explain A and then explain B. Don't do this. Just focus on the things they have in common, or particular things they differ in. Remember to be neutral: the essay doesn't ask for your opinion, just to contrast A and B.
