Steps to Writing Your Compare/Contrast Paper

1. Select two works

Download Appendix A (bottom of page) for a weekly timeline for this assignment. Choose two works you have read in this course to compare and contrast. Ask yourself these questions

  • Do these works deal with the same themes/issues?
  • Do the authors have similar styles or writing techniques?

2. Find 3-5 Sources

Go to Literary Reference Center (LRC) to search for literary criticism. You can access LRC through Galileo >Databases A-Z>L>Literary Reference Center.

Search LRC with the title of the story and click on the Literary Criticism tab to find essays. The "Critical Evaluation" section of the essays will provide literary criticism, which can help support the points you make in your paper.

You can view an LRC video tutorial here.

3. Begin Writing

Download the APA template before you start writing. Your paper should be 1,750 -2,100 words.

Refresh yourself on APA style whenever you plan to cite a source.

Remember to include the author's name and year after a citation (Miller, 2011) and include the full reference in your reference list.

Use Citation Machine for your references.
