The difference in contexts between the two texts affect the ideas presented within the text, such as the role of women and their aspirations, their role in relationships, the idea of marriage and also affects the form of the texts.

These three models have similarities that make them all useful depending on the type of writer you are. Although similar these models have major differences which could be the deciding factor on which one a writer would utilize. As I researched the three models it became more and more apparent that the Aristotelian model was the correct choice. I say this because I believe that to effectively support a claim you cannot support the opposing claim or idea in anyway shape or form. One cannot expect to win an argument or verbal dispute if their claims are not place ahead of all A writer would require the
For example, if your thesis is that although there are some similarities, the two topics are mostly different, your first developmental paragraph will present the similarities and your next two the differences. As always, you will begin each paragraph with a TOPIC SENTENCE that will define and limit your paragraph. There are two ways to develop a comparison/contrast paper, however.

Each author’s method in integrating the oral history may be different and, to some degree, inadequate, but the presence of oral accounts in their essays give voice to different perspectives of that time. It is evident, then, that altogether the oral history in each essay holds value and plays a significant role in the integrity of each argument. We must be careful, however, to fully accept the perspectives and arguments the author presents to us as definitively as any individual identity in any historical account, including the author, has the power to misinterpret and miscommunicate historical accounts accidently or
