WRAC - Essay Writing Tips and Tools

The following essays have all been carefully selected by Chabot instructors as models of good writing in various genres. All of the essays here include instructor commentary as well as a brief description of the assignment.

IMPORTANT: Please note that these essays should serve as writing models only. The language and ideas within belong to their original writers and may not be used in any other way but as examples of how an essay of that genre could be successfully constructed and developed. Also, it's good to remember that no two instructors are exactly alike in their expectations regarding student writing. While our essays are useful models, always consult your assignment sheet, or see your instructor directly for guidelines and specific requirements on your assignment before you begin writing.
