The essay should also address the prompt, should not digress from the topic, and the writer should incorporate proper diction and syntax, which boosts credibility. In 2010, a student was tasked with writing an essay about which fallacy was most predominant in Hitler’s essay, “On Nation and Race,” for Modesto Junior College English Professor Theron Westrope’s English 101 class.
