In a 2-3 page essay, compare and contrast the two stories you have chosen

timer Asked: Jan 30th, 2016

Question description

In a 2-3 page essay, compare and contrast the two stories you have chosen. To do this, re-read the stories carefully and determine a clear and manageable topic you will use as the basis for your comparison and contrast essay.

As you write the essay, stay focused on your chosen topic. Do not attempt to cover too much ground; do not re-hash the obvious. Instead, zero in on a unique point of comparison/contrast (characters, setting, theme, use of specific details, symbols or images).

Draft a one-sentence thesis statement that argues your point. Then develop that thesis through the paragraphs that follow. The last paragraph should be a conclusion in which you tie everything together. 

Remember always to give focused, specific support as you discuss similarities and differences in the stories’ treatment of the issue you have chosen to write about.

Please refer to the “Comparison and Contrast Essay Instructions” included in the Course Materials for this class as you plan and complete this assignment. The instructions contain detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to craft an effective comparison and contrast essay.
