Transcript of "Expositoryessay1"

  1. 1. The Expository Essay
  2. 2. What is an expository essay? <ul><li>An expository essay explains, or acquaints the reader with knowledge about the topic. Expository essays use facts and statistical information, cause and effect relationships, or examples. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is an expository essay? <ul><li>Since expository essays are factual, they are written without emotion and usually written in the third person. That means that the use of the pronoun &quot;I&quot; is not usually found within the essay. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Expository essays also have a distinct format. <ul><li>The main idea (thesis statement) must be narrow enough to be supported within the essay. </li></ul><ul><li>Each supporting paragraph must have a main supporting idea and all other sentences must relate directly to it. </li></ul><ul><li>Transition words or phrases are important as they help the flow and reinforce the logic. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Expository essays also have a distinct format. <ul><li>Finally, the conclusion paragraph should originally restate the main idea (thesis) and the main supporting ideas. Finish with the a statement that reinforces your position in a meaningful and memorable way. </li></ul><ul><li>Never introduce new material in the conclusion . </li></ul>
