Write a comparison/contrast essay on the topic:
Both Sunny Sharad Kadam in “My First Day In America” and Anna von Eingestellt in “Welcome To America” describe in their essays experiences that they had when they were coming to the U.S. Are these experiences more similar or more different? Write an essay in which you discuss this question, paying attention to the experiences themselves and the emotions that the writers feel.
Make a list of things that both writers did or felt, and another list of different feelings or experiences. Then decide: are the experiences and feelings of these writers more similar or more different?
Your essay must be five full paragraphs, and you should follow the rules and suggestions in handouts #16 and #17. All examples must be direct quotations from the texts. Please use “point-by-point” format.
