How do the sentiments expressed by the athenians here jive with the sentiments expressed in the funeral oration of pericles?

After reading Jerry Bentley and Herbert Ziegler, Traditions & Encounters, Chapter 10 and the web enrichment below

Explain.

Agricola Analytical Essay Assignment
<
Analyze the Agricola and write a standard essay that interpret Agricola’s meaning
<
by answering the questions below. The questions are meant to guide and focus
<
your inquiry. You may answer the questions in any order you choose and you may
<
combine questions but make it clear to the reader that you are still covering the
<
topic asked by the question. A brief answer to the more general questions (2 and 9)
<
could serve as your paper’s thesis statement but those answers need to be
<
developed with evidence later in the paper. That is, none of the questions can be
<
adequately answered in only one or two sentences but such sentences can serve as
<
your paper’s thesis statement or the topic sentences of paragraphs that then need
<
further development and exposition.
<
1. The Agricola is a biography. What do we know about Tacitus, its author?
<
2. What motivated Tacitus to write a biography of his father-in-law? Is it more
<
than a biography?
<
3. How does he begin and end the book? What do the beginning and ending tell
<
you about his purpose in writing it?
<
4. What major issues or problems of 1st-century CE Roman society, culture,
<
and politics does he address in the book?
<
5. What is the book’s tone? What words or phrases convey it? Does the tone
<
change with the subject matter? Explain.
<
6. What are Tacitus’ key points (information, assertions, judgments,
<
conclusions) in the book? Does anything surprise you?
<
7. What assumptions does Tacitus make? Are they reasonable ones? Give some
<
examples.
<
8. What values animate the book? With whom or what does his sympathies lie?
<
How can you tell?
<
9. What do you think is the Agricola’s historical significance? What can it tell
<
you about the early Roman Empire and the elites who governed it? What
<
may be its limitations as an historical source?
<
To help you organize your thoughts and your essay, please read the General
<
Suggestions for Essay Writing in Week 4. The essay should be 7-9 double-spaced
<
typed pages with standard one-inch margins. Be sure to cite a source for all quotes,
<
paraphrases, and historical claims and be sure to provide page numbers in your
<
citations.

There has to be a point or purpose behind the comparison, is what i’m saying.

Your research paper should be an argumentative essay that makes a specific claim about two or more of the course readings. The claim should incorporate some specific school of literary theory discussed in class. Support this claim and argument in a well-developed, well-written, and well-organized essay of at least 1500-1800 words of text (not counting the works cited page) and must also successfully use at least 3 critical secondary sources accessed through the relevant GMC Library databases. The list below provides general options for paper topics:
A paper focusing on multiple texts (no more than 3) by the same author
A paper focusing on multiple texts (but no more than 2) by different authors.
The sources should support the literary claim of the thesis
The sources (and therefore, the thesis) should support the stories we read in this course.
See below for additional Thesis Template Ideas:
1) Basic comparison/contrast in terms of literary element(s):
-“In ______________ and __________________, (event/character/theme) happens, but this (event/character/theme) is more effective and meaningful in (author name)’s story.”
-“Both __________________ and _________________ display (x idea), and when reading them together one can see that ____________________________.”
So, this is you making comparisons and distinctions between aspects of two or more works. Nothing too difficult about that, right? Except there needs to be a REASON for it, something that the comparison/contrast helps to demonstrate or show. In other words, you’re comparing, but with a purpose in mind. For example, I could compare an apple and an orange right now- but why would I do that? What’s the point? There has to be a point or purpose behind the comparison, is what I’m saying.
2) Discussion of texts as representative of literary periods:
-“Both _____________ and ______________ are great examples of (Realism/Modernism/ etc etc), and this paper will explain why.”
– “While _____________________ and __________________ are from different literary periods, they actually share many of the same themes and ideas.”
Show me that you understand what these periods are, how they differ from each other, and how these works do/do not represent these literary movements.
3) Application of Critical Theory to literary works:
– “A feminist reading of ________________ and ________________ will reveal that ________________.”
– “A psychological critique of the characters ____________________ and ___________________ will show that ________________________________.”
– Applying the Biographical and Historical strategies to this author’s works will prove that ______________________.”

<begin planning your op-ed and publishing your paper.

Minimum of 400 words.
<
Attached is the annotated bibliography on it and an example.
<
You have read several examples of print op-eds on educational issues and viewed one TedTalk. All of these pieces have the qualities of op ed that you determined as the essentials and possibles. You will now be tasked with writing an op-ed on your educational issue that you researched for your annotated bibliography.
<
<
As you’re working on your publish, remember that your audience is both professional and public and that you have a specific task and purpose.
<
That is, you’re imagining writing this op-ed essay for a professional journal and the potential audience can catch a wide net of readers: teachers, administrators, scholars, policymakers—your “tone” is very appropriate. Consider word choice and connotations carefully—be precise. You’ll want to use the models you’ve studied to write your op-ed in a way that can capture and hold the attention of many readers.
<
Begin planning your op-ed and publishing your paper. Remember to keep your task and audience in mind when you’re making your claim, choosing evidence from your sources, and publishing your paper.
<
Format your op-ed. Because this type of writing in education would appear in professional journals, use MS Word tools to create columns, headings, titles, and insert images so that the piece you create has the visual aesthetic of a publication.
