These are some of the "Explanatory" essays (#1) written by my Academic Writing I (spring semester), 2018 students at Kyoto Prefectural University. All names have been removed from the essays. All students whose essays appear here have given permission for their essays to be published.
Students wrote two or three drafts, which I corrected and commented on, before writing this final version. I did not correct errors in these final versions. Therefore, these should not be considered as model essays to copy.
Feel free to use these essays as you wish.

Feedback and comments are welcome.
