Let me see, how can I do your essay assignment for you?
Pick two you know about, look them up in a book and compare the aspects of them and how they can explain certain aspects of criminal motives.
E.g. body type theory probably says stuff along the lines of "if you are of a certain body type, you might have a particular motives for something", whereas social learning theory might state that the criminal is the product of their environment (and I made that up, so if it's right I'm a genius).
