10 5 Paragraph Essay Discussion

I want you to discuss the merits and downfalls of the Five Paragraph Essay, as you see them being, now that you have read the proceeding document.  Please consider all of the following in your response:

  • instances where you have used it before and whether it was useful or detrimental to your writing abilities.
  • the viability of such a structured style at the college/university level (for all assignments) versus high school.
  • the two terms I referenced at the close of the proceeding document: audience and purpose…what importance should they play in the formation of quality writing?
  • whether you believe you will use the Five Paragraph essay, or elements of it, in this course and where they would likely come into play.

Lastly, please post your response and reply to at least two other posts as well.
