Unit 3 discussion
Sometimes when you evaluate something, you will have to also
compare and contrast different aspects of what you are evaluating. You can
compare/contrast by either using point-by-point format (by topic) or block
format (by overall subject). For this discussion board, we are going to focus
on point-by-point organization to evaluate two movies.
In point-by-point format you organize the essay with
paragraphs focused on one topic. You
then compare/contrast the two movies according to one topic per paragraph. For
Many movies have been remade or a new franchise has been
started with the movies again. For example, consider how many different
versions of Batman have been created. In this discussion, you will create two
paragraphs that compare and contrast either an original movie and a remake OR
an older movie and a newer movie. Evaluate the movies by selecting two specific
topics to answer the question: Which of the two movies was better?
In your responses to your classmates, let them know if you
were convinced by them of which movie was better. Why or why not?
The following document will help you understand effective
organization for your comparison and contrast writing in this discussion. You
should focus on the first two sections of the resource, Compare and Contrast
and Organization Method. The other sections, Thesis Statement and Audience can
be referred to in the future if you are asked to write a compare and contrast
essay in other courses.
