Persuasive Writing

Persuasive writing utilizes logic and reason to get the reader to agree with their opinion or ideas. It attempts to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to take an action. The argument must always use sound reasoning and solid evidence by stating facts, giving logical reasons, using examples, and quoting experts. Learning how to recognize persuasive writing as well as how to write persuasively is a valuable skill Even our youngest students are not immune from the pressures of essay writing. We choose a wide range of interesting topics to help them practice how to argue for what they believe in. Here are some sample assignments:

1. Aliens: Fact or Fictions? Do you think whether Aliens exist or not? What evidence can be used to support your opinion? Suggested research areas: UFO reports, with more than 100 billion galaxies in the universe, is it possible that there is life on another planet?

2. Children should be able to use cellphones in school.

Descriptive/Narrative Writing:

The primary purpose of descriptive writing is to describe a person, place or thing in such a way that a picture is formed in the reader's mind. Capturing an event through descriptive writing involves paying close attention to the details by using all of your five senses. Teaching students to write more descriptively will improve their writing by making it more interesting and engaging to read. A good descriptive writing usually should avoid abstract language makes  and use of  figurative language such as analogies, similes and metaphors. 

Examples:

Abstract:  It was a nice day.  
Concrete:  The sun was shining and a slight breeze blew across my face. 

Abstract:  I liked writing poems, not essays.  
Concrete:  I liked writing short, rhythmic poems and hated rambling on about my thoughts in those four-page essays. 

Abstract:  Mr. Smith was a great teacher. 
Concrete:  Mr. Smith really knew how to help us turn our thoughts into good stories and essays.

Here are some sample assignments:

1. Every person has a favorite place to play. Think of your favorite place to play. It may be your backyard, or a playground, or a nearby woods, or an open field. What does this place look like? What are the sounds you hear there? What does it feel and smell like? Describe your favorite place to play so that your reader can see it without being there using the following guidance"

2. Make up story based on the picture. One day you see a picture of a dog and a cat, can you imagine a story for them?

 

Expository Writing

Expository writing is a staple of academic writing. Throughout your academic and professional career, you will be called on to write hundreds of expository articles, reports and essays. A thorough knowledge of this writing form will hold you in good stead all through your career. The purpose of the expository essay is to explain a topic in a logical and straightforward manner. Without bells and whistles, expository essays present a fair and balanced analysis of a subject based on facts—with no references to the writer’s opinions or emotions.

Sample assignments:

1. Most people like one particular animal more than others. What is your favorite animal? Why?
