This can be contrasted to the concept of a research paper where the goal is very different from an essay in a research paper no opinion is presented only facts so the essay assignment gives the student a chance to practice stating a reasoned opinion I added a link to the slide which goes into more detail about essays why we have them the different types help with writing them and so on you will see if you go to the link this cute logo the ole owl is spelled Oh W L and that actually stands for the Purdue University online Writing Lab I’ll be setting that amazing resource throughout the course gotta love the whole so the good news about five paragraph essays is that they are short only five paragraphs.
