3 more pages (including the reference page) will be more than sufficient.


Prompt –

To Compare –

Questions to keep in mind when you are writing the Comparison paper:

  • What are they (the 2 texts) about?
  • Did they originate at some particular time?
  • Who created them? Who uses or defends them? Or, more broadly, who does it appeal to?
  • What is the central focus, claim, or goal of each? What conclusions do they offer? What are the points of comparisons you can draw from them?
  • How are they applied to situations/people/things/etc.?
  • Which seems more plausible to you, and why? How broad is their scope?
  • What kind of evidence is offered from each of them?

Comparative critique of seven articles


You are required to review a minimum of seven articles (published within 8 years) which describe the public relations role of school leaders. You must write a single essay that compares and contrasts the elements of the seven articles. You will include a title page, abstract, and reference page in APA format that lists the seven articles used for this assignment. This critique needs to be 5–8 pages not including the title page, abstract, and reference page.

This assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 2.

There are 4 essay questions / comparative religions


The essays on the Final Exam are graded using the recommendations given earlier on the Midterm Exam.  Points are taken off for lack of citations (-4), lack of distinct paragraphs (all questions have at least two distinct sections), and poor English structure (so that it is hard to understand what you are trying to say).  If the textbox is not filled up completely the grade for that essay would be considered average at best as there would not be enough details to support the  complex question. A good rule of thumb, fill up the textbox so that it is 2x the length of what you see.  Then add the citation at the end of the question.  I do NOT recommend websites but rather the textbook as the main source.!/4/2/[email protected]:0.00
