comparison and contrast

Option #1: Brainstorm different topics that you could explore through comparison and contrast. Select a topic that is significant and meaningful to explore thoroughly. Write a 2-4 page, double-spaced essay using comparison/contrast as the primary developmental pattern. In addition, use at least two other methods of development (narration, description, classification, process analysis, illustration/example, cause/effect, definition, argument) to support your thesis. For this assignment you could use either the subject-by-subject method or the point-by-point method. Remember to make this comparison purposeful. Answer the question so what? Your comparison should be a part of a more significant whole. Make sure you provide a reason for this comparison. Include reminders and transitions to help your reader connect the dots. Make sure that your essay is balanced between the two elements that you are comparing.
Option #2: Write a 2-4 page, double-spaced essay comparing two characters from short story, book, or movie. Use your comparison of these two characters to show how (1) two people who initially seem similar are different, (2) how two people who initially seem different are similar, or (3) how two people, though comparable in some ways, are unequal. For example, you might discuss how two characters each have likable traits, but one would be more preferable than the other as a friend, sister, mate, etc… based on certain qualities or actions. This, obviously, is a subjective judgment, but your essay should clearly and fluently point out the reasons why you believe this judgment is true. In other words, support your assertion about these two characters. Avoid making your essay too plot-driven. Note: Make sure to select a subject that has level of depth to be able to make your essay purposeful for your readers. Why should your audience care about these characters?
