The influence of celebrities and the influence of parents

Essay 2: Comparison/Contrast

Task: For this assignment, you will write a 3–4 page essay comparing/contrasting two or more things. This is a process that you use when (1) you want to make a choice between two or more options (e.g., what course to enroll in, what movie to see, what CD to buy, etc.); (2) to persuade readers that one subject is better than another in some way (e.g., one restaurant has a better selection of seafood than the other); (3) to clear up confusion (e.g. by explaining the difference between a biologist and a biochemist); and/or (4) to persuade readers that two seemingly unlike subjects (people, events, texts, films, procedures–or anything else) possess similarities.
The comparison/contrast essay not only describes both the similarities and the differences of two or more subjects, but it also relies upon a detailed description of those aspects of your subjects that are relevant to your focus. For example, if you are taking someone to dinner and you must decide upon a restaurant, what is your main concern? Are you concerned with price, atmosphere, the variety of selections on the menu, or the restaurant’s reputation and/or rating?
