A Compare/Contrast Composition

After reading the story, “Knowledge is Power,” (found in your Groundwork for College Reading eBook pages 432 – 439) think about how the author, Anna-Maria Petrucci, writes that when she went to high school, students told horror stories about college. When you were in high school, what was your view of college? Has your view of college changed since then?

Compare and contrast what you thought about college while still in high school versus what you think about it now.
Write a topic sentence that states the main point of your composition without including details.
In the body of your paper, give specific details and examples of how your views are alike and how they are different.
