Comparative Essay

Prompt: What are some of the common themes in Chimananda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk, “The danger of a single story,” and Binyavanga Wainana’s article “How to write about Africa”? Choose any 3 themes that appear in both these texts and write a 3-4-page-long comparative essay on it. Directions: 1. Your paper should have a title and be formatted in the prescribed MLA format 2. It should be 3-4 pages long (including a separate Works Cited page). 3. You need to provide citations for any external sources that inform your paper and/or the main texts that you quote/summarize/paraphrase from. If you decide to use Ngozi’s TED transcript for purposes of in-text citation, make sure you number the pages on the transcript and use these inserted page numbers while providing an in-text citation for Ngozi’s text. However, if you choose to use in-text citations from the video (Links to an external site.) /TED Talk itself, you need to provide the exact time (hour: minute: second) of the occurrence of your material in the video. 4. Make use of transition words (Links to an external site.) to indicate movement from the discussion of one text or theme to another. Refer to the list of transitions provided on Canvas for ideas. 5. You can choose any 1 method of organization for your comparative essay (either the Block Method of organization or the Point-by-Point Method). This document will give you a clear idea of what is expected from the essay. Short note: your in-text citations, which will mostly be based on the article and transcript, will follow the usual source-integration techniques (feel free to refer to the instructions on the source integration assignment on Nadia Murad if you have forgotten the ways to summarize, quote, and paraphrase or how to use signal phrases. The Works Cited Page needs to cite the article (Links to an external site.) and the video (Links to an external site.) (the embedded links here tell you how to cite a magazine article and video in the MLA format). In case you have integrated any third source (like an article on these texts/ an author etc) in your paper, you have to cite this too.
