english............... can't decide

posted by .

Just got a debate to write on the following topic:
Modern Means of Communication have Brought People Closer
Are there more valid points if i write against the topic? Help................

  • English -

    I'd start out as if I were going to write a comparison/contrast paper. You may end up organizing it differently, but before you make up your mind which angle you're going to take, you need to do some extended and careful brainstorming.

    Try this, even if you don't get past the rough outline part:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    Whenever you are writing a comparison/contrast paper (paragraph, essay, research paper), you need to plan it out very carefully on paper first.

    Try this:

    1. Write all the information about one of your topics on one page.
    2. Write all the information about the other topic on another page.
    3. Then put them together in this order:

    1. Intro
    2. All about topic A
    ~~~2A. detail 1
    ~~~2B. detail 2
    ~~~2C. detail 3
    ~~~2D. detail 4
    ~~~2E. detail 5
    3. All about topic B
    ~~~3A. detail 1
    ~~~3B. detail 2
    ~~~3C. detail 3
    ~~~3D. detail 4
    ~~~3E. detail 5
    4. Concl.

    The number of details for each topic will vary depending on your main points. I would include comparisons (how they are similar) in the introduction and conclusion, but sections 2 and 3 and all those details will be stating and explaining how they are different.
