Tackling the “Issue” Essay Requirement
From Jeff Layne
CSU, Chico English Graduate Student & Student Learning Center Tutor
In the final presentation of his four-part GRE Writing Workshop series, Eric Dunk, a writing tutor in the Student Learning Center, leads students through an approach to the Issue Essays portion of the GRE. He defines the term “issue essay” as it relates to theGRE, what the people who score the test are looking for, and what students should include to achieve a high score. He provides several examples of the type of subject about which students will be asked to write, and then he discusses how students can build an essay around each subject.
