In this essay, you will use the comparison and contrast mode to develop your ideas about culture (theme). You will use comparison and contrast to help your reader better understand both your subjects. Your essay will need to have all the characteristics of comparison and contrast including an effective comparison and contrast thesis, strong topic sentences, an effective comparison and contrast method of organization, equal and balanced development of relevant points of comparison, and an effective introduction, and conclusion

 

Your essay will need to have all the characteristics of an academic essay including an effective thesis statement, focused topic sentences, strong organization, unified paragraphs, and a well-crafted introduction and conclusion.

 

Important: In selecting your topic and developing your ideas, be sure that your comparison points to a larger purpose: some lesson, insight or point that makes the comparison important. Additionally, you should support your essay with specific, clear, well developed examples all related to the unit theme.

 

 

Essay A: David Sedaris and Hugh Hamrick are both products of their experiences. Ask a friend or colleague to share the most important experiences they have had, the ones that have shaped their identity and made them who they are. Then, using this information for support, write an essay that compares and contrasts those with the experiences that have shaped your own identity.

Essay Guidelines

 

  • Your essay should be 3-5 pages long.
  • It should be typed using a standard 12 point font. MLA standard pagination is required. SeeThe Little Seagull Handbook 149 for a sample essay in MLA format.
  • Follow directions carefully.
  • It should be double-spaced with margins no bigger than 1 inch. (These are standard settings in Microsoft Word.)
  • You should carefully review the strategies for writing a Comparison and Contrast essay.
  • Be sure to include your name on your essay.
  • Create a Works Cited page and cite the essay you respond to. Cite any other outside sources used in the essay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this essay, you will write a cause and effect analysis essay about your chosen topic. Each topic has several supporting texts to use as support; read some or all essays listed with the topic to help develop your ideas. The listed supporting documents are the only ones you may use for this essay unless your instructor approves another.

Cause and effect is an in-depth examination of the relationship between causes and effects. It is not simply a list of causes or effects. In this essay, you will use at least two paraphrases or quotes from at least one of the listed texts to support your ideas. The emphasis in your essay should be on your ideas.

 

 
Essay B: Societal campaigns against obesity make fast food restaurants react and change: list calories, expand their menu offerings and more. Explain some other ways that fast food industry should respond to the changes in society (changes in economy, environment protection, culture) and predict the future of fast food chains. Use the sources below for additional reference.

Schlosser, Eric. “What We Eat”

“Good and Hungry” from The Economist online.

“The Birth of Fast Food: How McDonald’s and other fast-food chains changed the way America eats–and lives” by Charles Wilson

 “Food: Serving Up Superbrands” (BBC film in MC Library Films on Demand database)

If at any time one of the links above stops working, please, let me know. Meanwhile, you can search for the titles either on MC Library websites or on the Internet depending where the original location was. If you discover that you need to use a source of information that is not listed here, please, email me with the source and a brief explanation why you want to use it. For example, you might want to use a video clip with an advertisement for illustration. 

Essay Guidelines:

  • Your essay should be 3-5 pages long.
  • It should be typed using a standard 12 point font.  MLA standard pagination is required.
  • Follow directions carefully.
  • It should be double spaced with margins no bigger than 1 inch.
  • You should carefully review the strategies for writing a Cause and Effect Essay.  This means, you do not list cause and effects; rather, you develop a larger purpose, some lesson or insight that makes the cause and effect discussion important.  Consider how the causes result in the effects or how the effects result from the causes and the importance of that cause/effect relationship.
  • Use at least one outside source (article) of information to develop your essay.
  • Use a minimum of two quotes or paraphrases from an outside source.
  • Be sure to include your name on your essay.
  • Create a Works Cited page and cite all outside sources used in the essay including images and videos.

GDP

Your friend at work says the U.S. economy is not doing well: “We are just not a strong economy anymore.” You are not entirely convinced by her argument, so you do some research. Here is what you find:

There are three major powers in the world economy according to total GDP: China at $21.3 trillion; the EU at $19.2 trillion; and the United States at $18.6 trillion (all in real 2016 dollars). Maybe your friend is right?
Then you look at per capita GDP and it does not seem to tell the same story: China per capita GDP is $15,400; EU per capita GDP is $37,800; and U.S. per capita GDP is $57,300. Maybe your friend is wrong?
Perhaps we really need to understand what GDP measures and what it does not measure.

Using the above facts, make the case that the United States is still economically strong.

What does GDP measure and what does that tell us about our country’s economic strength?
Do you feel that GDP is valuable in understanding our country’s economic strength? Explain why or why not.
Do you believe that there is a better measure of a country’s economic strength that we should also use (in addition to GDP)? Explain your answer. If you don’t think there is, explain why
