Description writing

What is something - or someone - like? What are its characteristics or what are the different parts that make it up?

Description usually needs to be followed by or linked to explanation. The visual way to represent description may be as a diagram, with labelled parts, as in biology. However, if we are describing something more abstract - for example, the characteristics of the twentieth-century family - then a spider diagram may be a good way to build up our thinking on what it is like, as we considered in Chapter 2. As with chronology writing, you will usually need to move on to consider more analytic questions, such as why, or what does this mean or what does this relate to.
