Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

What is the difference between an informative essay and a persuasive essay? Why is it important to decide your intent before writing?

Answer:

An informative essay does not take a clear stance on an issue, merely to inform the reader that the issue exists as well as perhaps varying viewpoints on the issue. When writing a persuasive essay, you must make clear to the reader your stance on an issue and provide clear reasons for why your view is the optimal stance on the topic, hopefully convincing the reader to adopt your stance. It is important before writing an essay that you decide what you want to achieve with writing. Do you want to tell a story that shines light on an issue that many people are unaware of or do you want to persuade someone to change their mind on a topic? Deciding before writing will help in the writing process.

Question:

In Frederick Douglass's autobiography, "The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave" why is this book so unique in American Literature? What information does he provide the reader? Who is his audience?

Answer:

Douglass's book is so unique because he was one of the few slaves who ever lived who had learned to read and write. Much of history regarding slavery is from the perspective of white americans. The nuanced struggles of slaves are largely lost to history and his book is a seminole account of this narrative. Douglass is writing to a largely white audience, primarily because he knew most slaves couldn't read. He wanted to humanize the struggles of african americans and he felt his own struggles would be a good depiction of these struggles.

Subject: College Admissions

Question:

Why is the college essay so important in college admissions? Who is your audience?

Inactive

Answer:

The College essay is the only piece of information within your application that you have direct control over. It is also the only piece of the application that allows admissions representatives to get to know you and understand your history and intentions for applying. Typically, each application is assigned 2 readers in admissions who must meet and reconcile (decide on your application). They often have to read 1,000's of transcripts, test scores, and other numbers. The essay is the only unique aspect that they read and is the only chance you may have to persuade them.
