Academic Writing

Academic writing to me, is intimidating. The specific structure of each paragraph within a structured essay is almost like guess work. Each teacher has a different view on what academic writing really is, and the way they want their essays given.Academic writing seems more to do with your educational path, and what you've learned throughout the years in school, so class is involved. It isn't true that it's always involved but I think in most cases its involved. Theres other ways to express ideas and communicate with others besides through academic papers, such as presentations. Presentations make it easy to map out information for all to understand because you can incorporate other things besides words, such as graphs, or images.
