Hi, this is Laura Turner and today we're going to talk about how to write a comparative analysis. You might be writing about two different forms of literature, two different novels or two different approaches to politics. Whatever the case is, you are going to want to give equal weight in research to both sides. Then you're going to want to of course juxtapose the views of both sides. So you're going to want to take all the notes you possibly can on the first one, all the notes you possibly can on the second one, then divide them into similarities and differences between the two sides so that your analysis won't give too much weight to one side, of course it may be the side that you favor and then a little less to the other. So detail their similarities, detail their differences, compare and contrast them, based on these, and it really, try to reach a conclusion that is proper for your analysis, you know what was your initial question in the first place. Is one more effective than the other and then reach that conclusion based on the comparison that you've made in your comparative analysis. So, good luck with that.
