Week 2: Write a Comparison-Contrast

This week’s discussion helps you pinpoint the differences between scholarly and popular publications and evaluate their trustworthiness. Before starting to write your post, think about how you will structure your argument. For example, will you provide a brief summary of the publications first and then compare them? Will you list all the similarities and then all the differences?

See  this tutorial on Comparing and Contrasting for help in crafting your comparison. You could even create a Venn diagram or comparison table to visualize how the publications differ and relate.
