Copy and paste the selection in the space provided. Try to come up with synonyms and antonyms for 3 nouns and 3 verbs in the piece. Use the thesaurus or dictionary to help you come up with new words and phrases. Don’t worry if the new words change a rhyming scheme in a poem.

For example, how did they progress through the material in the Introduction so that you were provided with enough background information but also lead to the specific objective of the study?
An overall summary paragraphproviding reflection on how the article is structured and how different aspects of that structure help or hinder in your ability to follow the story or understand the study. For example, if the study incorporated multiple experimental components, did the authors always present the information about these components in the same order throughout each section of the article?
Qualities of the Hero: Comparing Gilgamesh and Odysseus..
Qualities of the Hero: Comparing Gilgamesh and Odysseus.
This “Assignment 2” writing assignment is a comparative essay focused on topics encountered in our HUM 111 class. The project will be based on research but will reflect your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to help you stretch your mind and your abilities as an organized, innovative, and critical thinker. If approached properly, it should also be fun!
Choose one (1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic carefully. Write a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that follows instructions and covers each part of the topic. (The title page and References list do not get included in this word count).
Note: Your instructor may require you to submit your topic choice for approval before the end of Week 5.
For the topic you choose:
Establish a clear thesis about your topic as part of the introductory paragraph (often the thesis is the last thing one determines after doing the basic research and outline; however it will be placed in the first paragraph of your paper).
This is a comparative essay. Comparison approached properly will require some critical thinking on your part. Use a point-by-point approach for the essay. That means, if comparing subject A with subject B, don’t do the first half of the essay on subject A and then the second half on subject B–that will seem like two (2) separate essays and comparisons will tend to get lost. Instead, you should be mentioning both subjects in most of your paragraphs as you compare them throughout the essay. Comparisons will identify similarities as well as contrasts.
Do not try to do everything on your two (2) subjects. You should end up narrowing your focus to a few insights and issues about the subjects being compared. And, from those fairly specific points of comparison, you will develop a thesis and glean some lessons.
Follow closely the instructions below for your specific topic.
Include a concluding paragraph at the end. This paragraph will, in some way, refer back to the thesis established in your first paragraph, since now you have demonstrated and supported it. It may be here that you also include your observations relating your study to the modern workplace or society (see your topic). Try to finish with flair!
Use at least three (3) good quality academic sources, with one (1) source being the class text. Note:Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources. You are highly encouraged to use the Resource Center tab at the top of your Blackboard page.
Topic Choices – Choose just one (1) of the topics below:
Qualities of the Hero: Comparing Gilgamesh and Odysseus. Write an essay comparing these two (2) heroic figures from ancient epics of different cultures, especially focusing your analysis on the sources about their encounters with monsters: Gilgamesh encounters the monster guarding the forest, Humbaba, in Tablets 3-5 of the Epic of Gilgamesh (see http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/; scroll down to the Tablet links; think of “Tablet” numbers like chapter numbers).” Odysseus encounters Polyphemus the Cyclops in Book 9 of The Odyssey (see http://www.theoi.com/Text/HomerOdyssey9.html; from line 105 to the end). Your paper should:
a) Compare Gilgamesh and Odysseus as to their heroic qualities, noting similarities and differences, using specific examples from the epics.

Focus your comparison on their writings as found at http://www.humanistictexts.org/lucretius.htm and http://www.humanistictexts.org/wangchung.htm#On Not Flying to Heaven. Your paper should:

Read the article, ‘Duck Dynasty’ and Quackery by Charles M. Blow, and write a six-paragraph essay to address each of the points outlined below (a bulleted or outline response to the points will automatically lose 20% for mechanics)..
Duck Dynasty’ and Quackery by Charles M. Blow
Draw three main conclusions from the article.
Do not just summarize the article. What are three conclusions you take away from the article? Enumerate them (e.g. First, Second and Third).
2.Explore how the social phenomena discussed in the article may or may not contribute to human suffering and or social disorganization
In other words, does Blow believe that Robertson’s denial of racism and discrimination leads to pain and suffering and/or social disorganization?
3 Identify which social perspective best fits the author’s approach in this article (The Functional-Structural, Social Conflict, or Symbolic Interaction).
Choose just one. Is Charles Blow’s approach micro or macro? Does he discuss how reality is constructed through interaction? Does his approach instead highlight how the phenomenon contributes to social integration and stability, or rather how racial or gender inquality, for example, benefit some while hurting others, leading to conflict and instability?
4. Describe the ways in which the topic can be defined as a “personal trouble” or “social issue” (consider the Sociological Imagination – this may be helpful) Be sure to cite specific evidence from the article to support your position.
Go to the site I reference, and then address whether what Robertson’s denial of racism and discrimination is a quirk unique to Robertson and his personal life story (i.e., a personal trouble) or if it represents a larger social issue which is the result of historical/social forces
5 Describe two important elements of data presented on the chart in the article and briefly interpret each data element.
Refer to the data provided in “The Southern Divide” chart. Focus on two of the poll items, and discuss the differences between what southern whites and blacks say.
6 Based on your exploration on points 1 to 5, make three recommendations including, but not limited to, a need for future research on this social phenomenon, (b) the development of new laws or public policies to address this issue or (c) relevant programs to assist individuals and groups regarding the issue.
