  4. Yes, you could use those as your topic. There will be plenty of differences and some similarities, too.

    If you wish, you can post your thesis statement and outline once you get these things planned. We can help you refine them before you start writing the first draft.

  6. Let's tweak that thesis statement. It needs to include not only facts, but also your position or your opinion, and it needs to be a statement that not everyone would agree with. As it is, it's simply factual. What do you think about these facts?

    Here's a really good webpage that shows you how to write good thesis statements:
    http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/acadwrite/thesistatement.html

    Your outline looks good, and I think the outline so far and your last statement indicates what YOU THINK about this topic -- that there are very few similarities and lots of differences! (Make that clear in your thesis statement.)

    Keep the outline the same, but repost when you've rewritten your thesis statement.
