Initial Code
def render(request, template, context=None):
    return render_to_response(
               template, context or {},context_instance=RequestContext(request)

django.views.generic.simple.direct_to_template takes request as the first parameter and does the same thing, in addition to providing URL parameters.

Here’s the source, from django/views/generic/

def direct_to_template(request, template, extra_context=None, mimetype=None, **kwargs):
Render a given template with any extra URL parameters in the context as
``{{ params }}``.
if extra_context is None: extra_context = {}
dictionary = {'params': kwargs}
for key, value in extra_context.items():
if callable(value):
dictionary[key] = value()
dictionary[key] = value
c = RequestContext(request, dictionary)
t = loader.get_template(template)
return HttpResponse(t.render(c), mimetype=mimetype)
