Write a 450-500 word journal with your thoughts on the following question:
Compare and contrast two of the writers and their ideas? What made them so different/alike?
When you’ve completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself and submit a copy to your instructor using the Dropbox by the end of the workshop. Title the paper by the two author’s last names. For instance: “Comparison of Arnold and Jones”.
If you quote any thing or use any information that you find in your text or in another source, then be sure to cite it using correct APA format. This means if it is a direct quote, you must have a page number in the citation. Strict APA formatting will be enforced.
