Question:

Think about someone you look up to. What about them makes you look up to them?

Answer:

When I think of the people in my life who I look up to, my first thoughts are of the teachers who inspired and guided me down the path that has gotten me where I am. Of all the teachers I've had, the person I look up to most would be my high school English teacher. Despite science being my best subject in school, she taught me to enjoy writing and expressing myself through telling stories. If it weren't for her guidance, I would most likely have continued studying environmental science in college. Maybe today, I'd be working for the National Parks Service if I had followed that path instead. While that would certainly be an interesting and unique job, I've found much more happiness in helping students succeed than I can imagine having found on any other path I could have taken.

Question:

Describe the differences between persuasive, informative, and narrative essays.

Answer:

The difference between these three main types of writing are the intent of the author. The first, persuasive, is written to persuade your intended audience that your position is correct. Often this is done by looking at the opposing argument and arguing against it while promoting the strong points of your own argument. One common way of promoting your argument in this type of essay is to organize it in such a way that your strongest point comes in your second to last paragraph. On the other side of the spectrum, where persuasive essays are meant to change the reader's opinion (making them inherently biased), informative essays are meant to express the facts. The author's opinions aren't the key focus of this type of essay like they are in other forms of the essay. Instead, the researched and accurate facts behind the author's topic are what take center stage. However, just because the informative essay is meant to be educational doesn't mean that they can't also present the information in an enjoyable way. However, if you're writing an essay that's truly meant to entertain, you're probably writing a narrative essay. The final type of essay, narrative essays, are meant to tell a story based around events that happened, generally centered on something that happened from the author's point of view. While these essays have some overlap with informative essays in that they talk about events that happened, narrative essays are unique in that their telling of events are colored by the author's perspective. Even if two people wrote about the same event they both experienced, their individual perspectives ensure that no two narrative essays will be the same.
