Compare Contrast Rhetorical Analysis Essay Guidelines
Assignment: (1,500 – 1,700 words or 5-6 pages) Write a thoughtfully organized, well-developed, and carefully proofread analysis synthesis Compare Contrast essay that meets the following criteria:
1. Choose two essays from the same section in the Revel reader portion of Perspectives on Argument that are about the same topic. We are reading articles in the Environment and Sustainability section, but you can choose any two essays in other sections.
2. Summarize both readings
3. Analyze each reading considering their rhetorical features and key ideas.
4. Compare and contrast the readings, both the authors’ ideas and rhetorical strategies.
5. Wrestle with the authors’ different perspectives, synthesizing their ideas to develop a complex response that reflects your new view of the issues and concepts discussed in the readings.
6. Document all sources with in-text citations and include them on your correctly formatted Works Cited page.
Comparing and contrasting is a useful critical reading strategy; particularly applicable when writers present similar subjects. Comparing is to analyze what the essays have in common; contrasting is to analyze how the essays differ.
Remember, this is NOT a position essay, so avoid taking a stand on whatever the article is about. You are ONLY analyzing the writing strategies/rhetorical choices of the authors. It is also NOT a review – you don’t “like” one more than the other, so avoid those types of comments.
Checklist for Comparing and Contrasting Related Readings:
1. Read them both to decide on a basis or grounds for comparison or contrast.
2. Reread and annotate one selection to identify points of comparison or contrast.
3. Reread the second selection, annotating for the points you have already identified.
4. Write up your analyses of the two selections, revising your analysis of the first selection to reflect any new insights you have gained.
Or write point-by-point comparison or contrast of the two selections.
Your essay should include discussion of the some of the following attributes of the articles:
• the intended audience
• the writer’s purpose
• identification and examples of rhetorical appeals of ethos, pathos, logos
• the types of evidence used
• evidence of logical fallacies or weak reasoning
• examples of inductive and deductive reasoning
• the writer’s style
Based on your thorough analysis, you will evaluate the articles and the credibility of the source. Accepted only in MLA format.
• Introduction: Your introduction should include a description and a summary of the main ideas of the articles. You should also include your evaluative thesis which tells the reader what the focus of your analysis is and what you intend to discuss in the essay. Specifically, an evaluative thesis states your overall evaluation of the writing quality and credibility of the articles and lists the specific criteria on which you have based your evaluation.
• Body of essay: You will analyze rhetorical features, such as the intended audience, the writer’s purpose, elements of rhetoric (i.e. ethos, pathos, logos), the types of evidence used, and the writer’s style. Based on your thorough analysis, you will evaluate the articles and the credibility of the source.
• Conclusion: Conclude what your analysis has shown, re-cap your evaluation of the articles, the content, the credibility, and, if applicable, the experiment/research, based on your analysis. You can also comment on how the articles or the research could have been improved.
As you work with the texts, remember to use attributive tags, quotation marks for any quoted passages, and MLA documentation to distinguish your own points about the text and the authors’ ideas or language.
When referring to the sources, avoid long quotes; use paraphrasing and summary so YOUR VOICE is heard in the paper, while using the source as evidence to support your claim. Remember, this is not a position paper – you are comparing and contrasting the authors’ rhetorical strategies and views.
DO NOT STRING QUOTES or PARAPHRASES TOGETHER. Every time you quote or paraphrase you must follow that sentence with correct MLA in-text citation, analysis and commentary. You need to provide your reader with some explanation as to why that material is important and/or relevant to your topic or thesis. You can analyze by connecting the quote/paraphrase to your idea or topic. In other words, how does it support your position? Interpret the source if it is jargon-filled or hard to grasp and explain how your quote shows logic, ethos, or pathos.

[ ] correct in-text MLA citations
[ ] correctly formatted MLA Works Cited List (any essay missing the WCL earns a 0)
