This assignment requires you to write a comparative evaluation of two subjects, each belonging to the same subcategory of a more general category.
The general categories allowed for this assignment are: Movies; Video Games; Sports Teams; and Albums by Musical Artists.
The subcategories within each of these categories are numerous, and you must choose one.
(For example, within the general category of Albums by Musical Artists, subcategories include Hip Hop albums; Country Music albums; etc.)
The key to completing this assignment effectively lies in finding appropriate criteria to apply in evaluating each of your two subjects — and it’s important that you apply the same criteria to both.
Appropriate criteria must include criteria appropriate to the subcategory as well as the general category.
For example: Acting and Writing are two criteria that can be applied to any Movie, but other criteria only apply to Movies of particular kinds/subcategories. See the Overview and other materials in this Module for more about this.
Your paper will, of course, be graded according to how well it fulfills this assignment, as well as by the other standards spelled out in the syllabus. (The syllabus identifies criteria appropriate to the grading of any academic paper, while the assignment details in this module provide criteria I will use in evaluating your work in this Comparative Evaluation.)
Your paper must be no less than 4 and no more than 6 typed, double spaced pages in length. This is not an academic research paper, so no citation of sources or Works Cited page is required.
