“Essays are shorter pieces of writing that often require the student to hone a number of skills such as close reading, analysis, comparison and contrast, persuasion, conciseness, clarity, and exposition.
The purpose of an essay is to encourage students to develop ideas and concepts in their writing … essays are concise and require clarity in purpose and direction. This means that there is no room for the students thoughts to wander or stray from his or her purpose; the writing must be deliberate and interesting.” (From Purdue OWL: Essay Writing (Links to an external site.))
