Will Hare January 28, 2007 ENG101 – Academic Writing Professor Byars-Nichols College English: A Whole New Ballgame In Jolliffe and Mulvaney’s essay “Differences Between College and High School Writing”, the authors contend that the differences between college English classes and high school English are vast and thus must be addressed. The four main differences they point out include “the expected level of quality, the variation in types and frequency of writing, the difference in instructional detail, and the disparity between an ‘assignment’ and a ‘project’.” (p. 15) Although I tend to agree with them on most points, there are a few issues I must address the few discrepancies I have with their essay. I will be concurring with them on the point regarding “the variation in types and frequency of writing”, while disagreeing with them when they address “the expected level of quality” and “the difference in instructional detail”. [ This introduction puts forth the authors thesis and clearly states the titles of the essay he is critiquing.] Jolliffe and Mulvaney point out that once in college, the types of papers you write and the sheer number of assignments is completely different from what you experience in high school. Being a freshman in college fresh out of the long, cold corridors of adolescence I can certainly agree with this. During my enjoyable stay in high school, I realized that every paper we wrote pretty much had the same basic format. They were all five-paragraph essays with an introduction, a conclusion, and a three-paragraph body.
