Today I’m going to give you directions for having students use those synopses as one half of a comparison.
The assignment for students
Find online the text of a commencement speech given at a college or high school graduation ceremony in the last five years in which the speaker gives graduates advice about how to find the best job for them. (Hint: Each year news organizations in the US publish stories about the most interesting and/or unusual commencement addresses. You can use the stories to help you find transcripts or videos of the speeches.)
Compare the post by Josh Spilker (https://yctw.click/whatif) that you read and condensed earlier with the message of the commencement speech you read/viewed.
In no more than 750 words, explain to someone who is not familiar with either presentation what you think is the major difference between the two. You can use the synopsis you wrote earlier as part of your explanation.
There are dozens of comparisons you could make. You must choose the one you think is most significant and give enough detail that your readers will agree with your position.
