First of all, it would be fair if you had explained to us that it was a text for academic purpose...
Not saying so, we get a more “relaxed” approach and might get you off the rails, at least in some degree.
To my thinking what people learn in books, contains the theory, the detailed explanation of (pretty much) anything. Yet, most often than not, reading a text book turn out to be tiresome to many people. As a result, they get quickly tired and disapointed, particularly when they need to make a big mental effort to get the information across.
Perhaps that´s why people lose their interest in what they are learning/reading. Eventually, one may even nod off when having to face so much theory!
However, in my opinion, I preffer the bringing of experience into play along with practical knowledge. This way, someone can learn faster and more effectively.
So, both sources are very important. Yet, compared with a “bookish” knowledge, the ability
gained from experience and practice is much pleasurable and allow the student to have a nice experience in learning things more willing and naturally.
Nowadays we do need easier methods (books included), and a book with familiar experiences
and that relates to the reader everyday events and information certainly improves his skills.

-beware the restatements of the prompts, that is, a repeat of the "hints/suggestions" they supply as a guide to the creation of a text. So, please try not to state it again, in part or in the whole.
Here it is:
It has been said, "Not everything that is learned is contained in books." Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?
-be careful with slangs and informal ways. More so if you don´t use it in a daily basis or don´t have much experience with the language. Use them in moderation.
-This is not the "final product", far from it. It´s just a first draft, rough diamond, some ideas. Let´s wait for further opinions on that one.
Good luck, see ya around (now I can use slang, it´s not part of the piece of text!)
