Summary, etc.:
Professor Cognard-Black reveals a common form of communication that is rarely thought of as an essay, though it often is: the letter. Coupled with an engaging activity, yoúll see how a handwritten letter differs from any other form of direct communication. Yoúll explore the similarities between letters and the epistolary essay as they both speak to a specific audience and convey a strong sense of reality and veracity. Then, yoúll consider passages from the best-selling book Between the World and Me, which is written as a letter to the authoŕs son.
