Plutarch’s “Tranquility of Mind”
Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman
PROMPT: Write a comparison/contrast essay which analyzes areas of overlap between these two works. You need to use material from both works to support your claims, and be sure to have a thesis and clear topic sentences which specifically indicate areas of comparison/contrast. For comparison/contrast essays, you want to be sure that you’ve identified relevant, interesting areas of “overlap” between the two essays (note that “similarities” and “differences” are not good ways of organizing the paper).
Todd Gitlin’s “Supersaturation, or the Media Torrent and the Disposable Feeling”
Sherry Turkle’s “How Computers Change the Way We Think”
PROMPT: Write a problem/solution essay on the topic of technology and children or on the topic of technology and education. Each paragraph should incorporate material from these two essays. Be sure that you have a clear thesis and clear topic sentences which specifically address either problem or solution (note that the “balance” between problem and solution is up to you, depending on your particular approach).
Plato’s Crito (Bboard)
MLK, Jr. – “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” (WTR)
Prompt: Write a comparison/contrast essay on the two essays above. For comparison/contrast essays, you want to be sure that you’ve identified relevant, interesting areas of “overlap” between the two essays (note that “similarities” and “differences” are not good ways of organizing the paper).
Below are some areas for consideration. Note that you do not need to address all of these, and that you are welcome to discuss areas you have come up with on your own.
What is the purpose for which each of the men (Socrates and King) act? That is, why are they doing what they are doing? To think about this properly, you should also consider the context or situation each of the men faces.
What is the speaker/writer’s reaction to his situation? You might consider how the speaker reacts to his circumstances in both action and attitude.
Consider how each of the men speaks or writes in the situation (this is “style”). Does the speaker/writer rely on emotion or logic, primarily, to prove his point? How does the intended audience influence how and what the speaker/writer has to say?
What overall message does the speaker/writer wish to leave with his reader?
