I’m asking that you submit a 2-3 page (double spaced) Compare/Contrast Essay in size 12 pt. font (preferably Times New Roman or Calibri) that accounts for comparing and contrasting something of significance but that is also somewhat personal in nature or is of personal interest to you. Do not choose something that is obvious (AKA apples vs. oranges) or common knowledge. I would also ask that you submit it as a Word document or a PDF so that I may open it in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat Reader. This will be your first draft, which I will edit and return to you with comments. You will then participate in Peer Exchange where a few classmates also provide feedback (via a series of questions I will ask them to consider) and you will have the opportunity to revise it one more time before you submit the final draft that I will grade.
