  1. What kind of HELP do you need? You need to be specific when asking questions here.

    If all you do is post your entire assignment, nothing will happen since no one here will do your work for you. But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you.

  2. I need help with the interior and exterior plan of Chartres. The textbook makes its seem so complicated. I can't answer the question.

    BTW, I didn't post the entire assignment just the two questions I had trouble with.

    There are several links in here, including one on YouTube, that may help. The fourth one looks promising, too. Read through and view several or all of these. Then you should be able to answer the first question. In addition, what's in your text? What have you done or seen in class? This is a very visual assignment.

    For the second question, you'll need to make sure you have clear images of each place in your mind -- or clear pictures online or in your text. List things they have in common (those are for comparison); list things they don't have in common (those are for contrast).

    Following is the lesson I give for people who have a comparison/contrast assignment:

    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.

    There are two recognized patterns for writing comparison/contrast papers. One is casually referred to as "zig-zag,” but can be very confusing for the reader if you don’t use transitions effectively. The other is topic-by-topic (which is what I've outlined above) and is much easier for the reader to follow.

    See for further help with comparison/contrast writing.

    Once you have organized your information, please repost if you’d like feedback from someone here.
