Strategies for Selecting a Topic
Complete the following table. Answer in the boxes below What two objects, people, subjects, or concepts are you going to compare and contrast in your Week 5 assignment? Once you choose the two, answer the questions below for those two only. I have decided to compare and contrast camping to sleeping in a motel.
What are three similarities between the two you have chosen? The three similarities should be distinct from each other.
The similarities between camping and sleeping in a motel are: 1. You can use linens such as blankets, sheets and pillows. 2. You can sleep in both places. 3. You can have privacy depending on where you camp or if you are in a tent.
What are three differences between the two you have chosen? The three differences should be distinct from each other. The differences are: 1. In a motel you can control the climate with either heat or air conditioning and outdoors you typically are going to be either hot or cold and you could be subjected to severe weather such as a storm. 2. In a motel you have your own shower verses while camping in a tent you are only going to have a shower if you are at a camp ground and in that case it will be a public shower. 3. Also in a motel you have the luxury of appliances such as a television, microwave and refrigerator. Are you going to focus on similarities, differences, or both? Explain your rationale.
I believe my focus will be mostly on differences because there seem to be a lot more differences than similarities. I think it will be easier for me to contrast the two topics because there are so many differences....
