. What you need to cover in this assignment is not to just confine your essay to a topic you feel comfortable with or feel you know a great deal about, but also step back and look at your issue in a comparative sense. In other words, for example, if you are analyzing a drug use policy or a crime control policy or a volunteer program, you need to also see how you can find something similar elsewhere in the United States and make a comparison with the program or policy you are examining.
Comparison is an important aspect of how you examine or analyze policies or programs since they help you to see something in perspective. You want to develop an understanding that there are similar policies or programs around the country and that this perspective allows you to see how "successful" or "normal" or "substandard" the policy or program you are analyzing really is in relationship to other similar situations.
Comparison can help you to see what needs to be addressed, where the problems lie and what solutions might be available to address them. Admittedly, everything cannot be precisely compared or contrasted with something else, but you also want to develop an understanding that you do not need to "reinvent the wheel"--there are policies and programs you can learn from.
