MJW - Realty Group - Thank you essay for teachers
Thank you! Preaching to the choir! You asked in the comments how to teach this to ESL students. Well, that's my job, and the answer for me is to teach genres not modes, which is essentially what you did with the history professor you mentioned. Find good models, deconstruct them to find the stages of meaning, and then scaffold the writing, leading to independent mastery. This answers the question posted above about what goes "in the middle." There's some great research to show that university instructors define assignments like "essay" and "research paper" in all sorts of different ways. Students need the skills to analyze and respond in multiple genres, not the "limited literacy" (Linda Flowers' term) of the 5-paragraph pseudo-genre.

Dear Teacher Sjm,
Since you are here, could you please explaining this sentence to me? I do not understand what it means. Thank you very much!
"On the societal level, by forcing people to choose particular university subjects, governments can ensure that any knowledge and skill gaps in the economy are covered."
I have seen it in a Task 2 essay written by Teacher Simon, but I do not understand what he means by that.
