What I Learned About Synthesis Papers

The goal of a synthesis paper is to compare and contrast different authors ideas about a controversial topic objectively and then add your own opinion afterwards. You have to make it seem like the authors are debating in a sense or what they would say if they were.
What made this paper hard to write was doing what I said above. It can be somewhat confusing at first to know how to make the authors “talk” to each other, but if you know their articles well enough and read them a lot it can be a lot simpler.
The easy thing about this paper was finding the articles because the info on how to find them was all on blackboard.
I do not feel like I see that many examples of synthesis in my ever day life but I would see them more often on the news because they are always interviewing several people at once with different sides to a controversial issue.
