How would you describe yourself as a student (e.g. what are your academic interests and habits)? What is your experience of academic writing? How would you define the genre of the essay? What are its constituent parts? What purpose(s) does it serve? What makes an essay effective or ineffective?
I liked academic writing as I think it helped us in increasing our understanding about that subject as we can only write about something when we have sufficient knowledge for same. It also helped me improving my writing style as after every essay profession gave us his feedbacks and that helped me in making it better and finally improving my grades and skills together.
Genre is the way a paragraph or passage is written. In essay 4 genres are there
- Description: – In this style essay is written as it it is defining or description about something. For example, if you are writing about a pen, then in descriptive you will explain about its shape, color, styles etc. which will describe it
