Reaction to classification essays

I hope you don't hold this against me but I don't think I like the classification essay's. Not because the writing is bad or the topics are lame, I just don't think this layout or "style" of essay is my cup of tea. I am actually really nervous about having to write my own. I have no clue what I am going to write about when I get started on it,that's why I like the step by step approach you have us do. First the intro, then the outro and then without even realizing it we have most of it done. If I had to pick one of the sample essays I liked the most it would be the first one " Snakes, and snails and puppy dog tails". I liked how simple it felt compared to the others, and how she used a real life personal example and just compared it to those "sayings". I am going to try and stick with that type of formula when I write mine. Im interested to see if I change my mind at all about these classification essays after all is said and done and mine is written, I may surprise myself.

  1. Believe me, I have no personal stake it these type of essays! I didn't invent them and have no pride of authorship or ownership! I won't hold it against you if you hate hate hate them (just write a decent one!)


    I do think Snakes & Snails is a fine essay and model for you or any student.
