Writing types

Writing to analyse, review and comment are quite similar to writing to argue, persuade and advise because they examine the main aspects of an issue, make points about the findings, provide evidence to support these points and reach a conclusion.

Writing to analyse, review and comment are quite similar to writing to argue, persuade and advise because they examine the main aspects of an issue, make points about the findings, provide evidence to support these points and reach a conclusion.

When you are writing to analyse you tend to be quite distant - don't show your personal opinions and be detached from the conclusions you reach.

Here is a typical question:

Some students feel that there is still too much unhealthy junk food in school. They want more healthy dishes. Others say they wouldn't eat the healthy food and would just bring in their own food or go out to the chip shop, which is out of bounds. We need a solution!

Write a speech, to be given at a School Governors' meeting, analysing the advantages and disadvantages of making school dinners healthier.

You have to forget about your own preferences. Be thoughtful and give a balanced view of the problem. You could start with ideas like these:

Why it should stay the same

Why it should be healthier

Popular with many students

Better selection, especially for vegetarians

Cheap to produce, therefore, lower prices

Better for us - will improve health and learning

Students won't go out of school for food

Having both would mean more choice

You must also come to a reasonable conclusion. Remember, it has to be a formal speech, that can provide a solution which will solve the problem.
