From the annals of (my) history: Discursive essay writing

Photo of calligraphy nibs and dry-transfer lettering

After 7½ years together, Jen has finally merged our stationery collections.

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I was a font geek as a child too, as you can see from the calligraphy nibs and the dry-transfer lettering in the photo. But I also found what I can only assume are GCSE English notes:

Discursive essay writing

  1. Begin by capturing the reader’s interest by something surprising or interesting.
  2. Write a few paragraphs putting forward the argument(s) you disagree with and explain why you disagree.
  3. Write a few more paragraphs on the points you support and explain why you support them.
  4. Save our strongest arguments until last.
  5. In the last paragraph, leave the reader with something to think about.

Aww, bless 🙂
