Format for Academic writing

This exercise gives a student a handout with 5 different formats of the same writing sample. Looking at the handout they must decide which format is best. What are the differences between the formats and finally come up with some writing rules for their own submissions.

This is a very inductive style of teaching where the students come to an understanding of what they must do by evaluating samples of what has been done.
