Prepare a Compare and Contrast Essay
Write a 700- to 900-word compare-and-contrast essay that focuses on differences (or similarities) in language use between Andrew Jackson’s message to Congress and Michael Rutledge’s account of his great-great grandfather.Focus on tone, diction, sentence structure, and other topics covered in this lesson. Do not focus on the Trail of Tears, the Indian Removal Act, and other historical content except to help clarify something about the authors’ use of language.Organize your essay with an introduction, body, and conclusion. In your introduction paragraph, state the overall purpose of your comparison. Devote each body paragraph to a single point of comparison, taking care to mention both readings within each paragraph. Finally, wrap up your essay in a conclusion paragraph that reminds the reader of what the differences and similarities in the language of the two readings reveal overall.
