1

  • Without driving yourself crazy

Essay Subjects leading to topics for a compare
and contrast essay on Lord of the Flies and Our
Twisted Hero power, masculinity, cultures and
their rules, order and disorder, negative
behaviors and influences, leadership, peer

  • Good website bubbl.us for blank brainstorming
    template

3
The Opening Paragraph
Title
Hook
Broad Discussion
Introduction of author, work, time period
Thesis statement
4
Elements of the Opening Paragraph
  • Title Create a title that intrigues, but does
    not describe The whole paper.
  • The Hook statistic, anecdote, quotation, or (not
    in this class) question (sentence one) Example

A good leader inspires people to have
confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires
people to have confidence in themselves-Anon.
5
Transition word or phrase to Broad Discussion,
which is defined as a general discussion grounded
with specific examples that lead into the text.
See example(sentences 2-5)
  • As the quotation illustrates, there is often a
    tension that exists between leaders and their
    followers. Throughout history negative leaders
    like Mao, Stalin, and Kim Jong ll created cults
    of personality, repressed criticism, and
    demanding slavish devotion from their countrymen.
    In contrast, positive leaders often lead by moral
    suasion, example, or inspiration. Additionally,
    many negative leaders find followers because of
    fear and indifference, and often those who
    challenge leadership suffer physically,
    emotionally, and psychologically. They become
    warnings that questioning power often fails or
    results in great pain.

6
Introduction to text, characters, brief summary,
historical background. (2-3 sentences)
  • This dynamic appears in the novels Lord of the
    Flies and Our Twisted Hero, where two powerful
    children control the rest with violence and
    mental repression. From two different cultures,
    and written 100 years apart, both novels show
    this dynamic starting during early childhood. In
    the former, children adrift on an isle create a
    culture reflecting all the evils the adults are
    fighting during World War II, and in the later, a
    young boy attends a rural school where he finds a
    bully dominating everyone. The bully also
    reflects the dictatorship found in South Korea
    during this time.

7
The Thesis
  • Must be debatable
  • Must be one sentence
  • Must be at the end of the opening paragraph
  • Must connect to the meaning of the work as a
    whole
  • Example Humans naturally gravitate to powerful
    leaders due to fear or indifference
    additionally, those who challenge the powerful
    often suffer physically or emotionally.

8
The Thesis
  • Both novels demonstrate that ruthless leaders
    often control the majority with physical
    intimidation and emotional and mental pain those
    who resist fail and serve as a warning to others.
