  • Identify a common theme in two short stories
  • Identify one to three examples from each story as evidence of the theme

  • Write clear topic sentences for paragraphs that inform the reader what the paragraph will discuss
  • Develop paragraphs that support the topic sentences
  • Organize a comparison and contrast paper by presenting paragraphs logically and effectively, using one of two methods for comparison and contrast: story-by-story or idea-by-idea
  • Write sentences in Standard English that clearly express ideas
  • Demonstrate correct use of MLA formatting within the paper and on a Works Cited page
  • Explain your writing process clearly and coherently

Overview of the Workshop Format for Paper 2

Paper 2, You will be developing a comparison/contrast paper that focuses on bringing in appropriate material from Paper 1 and your two chosen stories.

Thesis Statement and Outline. Your thesis statement should identify both stories and the theme. You will work on the thesis, pattern of organization, and outline. Topic sentences for the outline will be reviewed, and you will also be applying the critical reading skills you’ve been developing throughout the course.

Development. Paragraphs of the body of the paper will focus on analyzing how literary elements in each story exemplify the common theme. During the discussions, you will review the following writing strategies to develop your paper, paragraphs for which are more complex because two stories (instead of one) are compared/contrasted to develop and present your ideas.

  • development of body paragraphs that include strong topic sentences and transitions that set up comparison/contrast of the two stories and their shared theme
  • development and management of signal phrases when using multiple sources in writing
  • inclusion of claims and evidence that help to develop your argument
  • using keywords and quotations as development techniques

Sentence Level and MLA. Your writing should be carefully proofread for sentence-level concerns. It should be formatted and documented according to MLA style in the form of parenthetical citations and a Works Cited page. Throughout the writing of Paper 2, you will be applying grammatical and documentation skills you learned from Paper 1.

Reminder: As in Paper 1, remember that your reader has read the stories and is familiar with them. Extensive summary is not useful. Rather, analyze and explain how selected literary elements from the two stories illustrate the theme and support your thesis.

Reflection: Include within the same document as the paper itself a few paragraphs (three to four) describing your writing process, including what you learned about writing in moving from Paper 1 to Paper 2.

Word Count:

  • 750-1,000 words (Paper 2)
  • three-four paragraphs (Reflection)
