Two Types of Essays
Your composition professor has given you an assignment, requiring you to write an essay in which you identify your favorite book and explain why you like it best. Later she assigns an essay in which you take a stand either for or against homeschooling.
Both assignments require you to write a paper, yet the essays called for are in two different genres. Thus, you will need to present your views in two different ways.
