These three readings are about comparing and contrasting. In essay, The Tenacity of Hope, Natalie Sandiford compares and contrasts The Fault in our Stars to The Probability of Miracles. In essay, Where Wordplay Trumps Swordplay,  Chris Suellentrop compares The Walking Dead game and show to the Game of Thrones game and show. Sandiford and Suellentrop both have two different styles of comparing and contrasting; we all have our own style comparing and contrasting. The final reading, Comparing and Contrasting, provides you, the reader, with a list of ways to compare and contrast (pg. 380 of The Norton field Guide to Writing With Readings). This section of the book provides readers with a different strategies to compare and contrast. For example, the block method and the point-by-point method; graphs and figurative lagnage can be used to make comparisons (Don’t forget about the rhetorical situation!).

In the essay, Juno: Not Just Another, Ali Heinekamp evaluates the movie Juno has a fair and balanced assessment; Just like Sandifords and Suellentrops essays do. The three essays are well balanced, they do not steer to one side being more positive or negative, they it neutral. Sandiford talks about the negatives of both books as well as the positives. Suellentrop does the same, he goes back and forth, giving a comparison and constaration both positive and negative ways. These three writers are knowledgeable in the discussion because they provide cited reviews, explanations which prove they’ve done their research. They all meet the requirements of what it takes an essay to be good evaluation essay.

Till next time.
