COMPARE / CONTRAST ESSAY PROMPT
Conceive of this essay as two texts talking to each other. You, as the writer, are the one curating the conversation (or two-person dinner party, if you’d like to think of it that way). In your essay, explain where the two viewpoints of the authors overlap, and where they diverge.
This essay should be in a traditional essay format, including an introduction, a thesis at the end of the introduction, body paragraphs, a conclusion, and a bibliography. For your body paragraphs, organize them in a way that is not just a binary of everything they have in common and everything they do not; rather, organize each body paragraph as a main quality that they either agree or do not. You should have two paragraphs discussing two qualities in which the authors agree or disagree and why, with quoted evidence. You should then have an additional third body paragraph in which the authors agree or disagree (whatever you did not already cover in your first two body paragraphs) and why, with quoted evidence in each paragraph, along with sufficient analysis for each quote.
Ultimately, you are still presenting an argument. Your thesis statement must be specific, debatable, and important (why should we care about the comparison you are making?), but should be making a comparison between the two authors’ viewpoints.
The options for this essay are as follows:
Pick two of the essays we have discussed in class on confederate monuments (Furgurson, “The End of History?”; Staples, “Confederate Monuments as Instruments of Terror”; or Williams, “You Want A Confederate Monument? My Body Is A Confederate Monument”) to compare and contrast the author’s viewpoints on this subject.
Or, choose one of the above essays, and compare/contrast with an essay of your choice. The essay you choose must be first approved by me, and must be a credible source (cannot be a blog post, or any other source that has not been fact-checked).
