Education - Part 3
Many students cannot understand why professors urge them to get involved into different extracurricular activities and how this may be beneficial for them. In fact, they think that this is just another way of making their life more complicated and a way of preventing them from having fun. Of course, it isn’t so, and let me explain why.
To my mind, grades are one of the realities that make students feel miserable and confused. Moreover, they aren’t always fair and can completely eradicate the desire to study in a diligent manner.

Essay themes are often related to the scientific literature, which unites all objects of general sciences, such as philosophy, literary theory and criticism, aesthetics, political science, sociology and others; however, essay’s approach to objects differs from the scientific one by providing leading role to the author’s personality, which determines principles of object’s analysis. In other words, it is the major forming factor of essay. Besides, special attention is often paid to chronology, as well as expressiveness and symbolism.
Descriptive essay is dedicated to description of the given object, event or case. It should be written with the usage of expressive language in introduction of examples, including comparisons with some other objects; there should also be presented author’s vision of the subject.
When you set about writing a descriptive essay, it is necessary to remember that every object, event, or case can be considered in different ways. Therefore, it is necessary to start from some general characteristics of the object, and then proceed to specific features.
Evaluation essay writing is generally based on examining the subject and stating the verdict – whether it’s good or bad. An important point here is that the author can come up with specific criteria for the subject’s examination and judgment. Usually, the goal of this type of essay is either to influence the reader’s opinion about the subject, or convince the reader to accept the author’s statements.
A comparison essay is dedicated to description of similar and different features of two or more objects. It can also depict the contrast of two opposite items. In a comparison essay, the main author’s goal is to arrange ideas and characteristics that are common to the objects described in order to clarify peculiarities of each.
Author’s claim is honorable presentation of an author that he makes in his writing – to some person or his memory, group of people, establishment or even abstract idea. As it is seen from one epigram of Martialis, such statements were known back in Roman times. Dedication can take a form of an official statement or may be written in a verse form.
