Order instructions:Your assignment is to write a 3 page MLA formatted compare and contrast essay over “Black Men and Public Space ” (p.179) and “Parallel Time” (provided below). The first essay is located in your Reading Critically, Writing Well textbook.”Parallel Time” was shortened considerably in the newest textbook edition so I provided a link to its entirety at the end of this page. You will need a works cited page for this essay in order to pass. It is important that each story has its own works cited entry. Cite each story as a “selection from an anthology”. There are numerous examples in your book (directory of works cited models starts on p 120 in the Seagull book) and on the OWL at Purdue website. I have also included an example in the folder for this week. Also, be sure that within your essay body I am always aware which essay you are referring to. Brent Staples wrote both of these essays. Therefore, you can’t say “In the Staples essay”. I won’t know which one you are referring to. You also can’t say “in the first essay” because I won’t know which essay you read first.
Finally, provide textual evidence to back up your points. The easiest way to do this is to include a signal phrase, quoted material, and a parenthetical citation.
