In the Humanities or Creative Writing classroom, a genre list can offer students possibilities for writing assignments and projects which can offer "the essay" both purpose and voice.
Instead of an essay on comparing and contrasting Lady Capulet's and Juliet's views of marriage, create a dialogue, and let the two women speak to each other.
Instead of an analysis of Huck Finn's views on race, write a eulogy for Huck's prejudices, ending with a view of heaven on the raft.
As students searching for possibilities for non-analytical writing, the same list can catapult students into new perspectives and ideas.
