Project #33369 - Advanced Composition

 

Using Comparison and Contrast

 

you must read one novel that has then been turned into a movie and to watch that movie

 

to write the researchpaper for this lesson. preferably "to kill a mocking bird"

 

 

 

Not children's book or a comic book. A full book

 

Objective

 

Using six outside sources, students write a 2,000- to 2,500-

 

word comparison or contrast research paper that explores

 

the commonalities and differences of plot or character development

 

between a book and a movie based on the book.

 

The paper will persuade the reader that either the book or

 

the movie does the better job of expressing the writer’s

 

literary aim. 

 

Topic

 

Have you ever read a book and then been excited to see the

 

movie—only to find the movie a huge disappointment? Or

 

perhaps you found the movie version enlightened the book?

 

Your assignment is to provide your own analysis of a novel

 

you choose that has been made into a movie (not a movie

 

that has been made into a book). You’ll write your literary

 

analysis using the comparison and contrast pattern of development.

 

Your analysis must incorporate examples from both

 

the book and movie to illustrate the commonalities or differences

 

for either the plot development or one major character

 

in the book and the movie. You must conduct either an interview

 

or a survey related to the novel and movie, as well as

 

research different reviews of both the movie and the book to

 

support your analysis. You must use a total of six sources for

 

this assignment: the novel, the movie, one interview or survey

 

you conducted, and three critical reviews.

 

 

 

Purpose

 

To inform your audience about one literary element in the

 

novel and movie

 

To persuade your audience that either the book or the

 

movie does a better job developing either the plot or one

 

major character

 

Audience

 

Distance-education students

 

Process

 

Review the novel you chose for this assignment and the

 

movie based on that novel. Choose to focus either on plot

 

development or on one major character. Scan through the

 

novel to mark examples related to that focus and watch the

 

movie again taking notes of examples.

 

Keeping notes as you go, work from “Generating Ideas” on

 

page 386 through item 1 of “Discovering Similarities and

 

Differences and Generating Details” on page 387. Don’t

 

conduct any research at this point.

 

Continue with item 4 of “Discovering Similarities and

 

Differences and Generating Details” on page 387, where

 

you imagine the author of the novel interacting with the stars

 

or scriptwriter in the movie. Explore how the author would

 

react and what he or she might say about the way the novel

 

has been adapted. Then explore what the stars/scriptwriter

 

might say to defend the movie. Don’t conduct any research

 

at this point.

 

Craft applicable questions for either an interview or survey to

 

learn what others think about the novel, the movie, or both.

 

Conduct that research.

 

After completing the previous steps, conduct additional

 

research, picking up with item 5 of “Discovering Similarities

 

and Differences and Generating Details” on page 387.

 

Remember to conduct enough research to educate

 

yourself and to find the four sources most applicable

 

to your purpose and audience

 

Continue with “Developing Your Thesis” on page 388 and

 

work through the rest of the “Guided Writing Assignment”

 

through page 392 to produce the required comparison or

 

contrast research paper.

 

Use your textbook as needed to apply appropriate writing

 

skills as you prewrite, research, organize, draft, revise, edit,

 

and proofread to produce a final essay meeting the content

 

and length requirements. You must also ensure your work

 

displays good writing traits, such as those indicated in the

 

Advanced Composition course rubric

 

Prepare a final draft of the paper according to the exam submission

 

format assigned in the Syllabus.

 

 

 

 Provide the MLA

 

Works Cited page as the last page in your document (but not

 

included in the word count).
