Guidelines for Writing In-Class Essays Rationale: In both your academic and professional careers, you will often be faced with situations in which you must  write a coherent, effective piece in a limited amount of time, without the benefit of revision. Although in  many cases, these occasions are entirely extemporaneous, more often than not, you will have the opportunity  to prepare yourself to execute the task effectively.    Contexts/Types: 1.
