Rebut Opposing Viewpoint Writing Assignment 2 Co

For Writing Assignment 2, you will write a 350-500 word comparison and contrast paper on two sources from the Topics and Sources page. We encourage you to use the same sources you worked with in the Activities in this module, since those Activities were planned with this Writing Assignment in mind. Activity 4, where you created Venn diagrams that compare and contrast two sources, laid the groundwork for Writing Assignment 2, so using the same sources you used in Activity 4 capitalizes on the work you’ve already done.

The questions below will help you draft your paper by asking to you construct one paragraph at a time and then download a Word document that will combine the paragraphs together into a single paper.

You may use either a point-by-point or a topic-by-topic organizational strategy, but your comparison and contrast paper MUST include all of the elements below:

  • A discussion of the similarities in two sources on the same topic
    • address similarities in the main argument they present on the same topic
    • address similarities in the types of examples and evidence they use to support EITHER their supporting points OR their counterarguments
  • A discussion of the differences between two sources on the same topic
    • address differences in the main argument they present on the same topic
    • address similarities in the types of examples and evidence they use to support EITHER their supporting points OR their counterarguments
  • Clear, illustrative examples from each source to help the reader better understand the similarities and differences between the two sources
  • Both in-text and reference citations in APA format for all referenced source summarized, paraphrased, and quoted material, using the APA citation wizard
  • An objective, third person perspective. Your comparison and contrast paper must be written in third person.
