Romeo & Juliet—Expository Essay Romeo & Juliet—Expository Essay Presentation Transcript

  • Romeo & Juliet
    • Expository Essay
  • What is an EXPOSITORY ESSAY?
    • Expository essays are simply essays that explain something with facts, as opposed to opinion .
  • In this essay you will:
    • Explain which character(s) you believe are most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet…
    • BASED ON TEXT EVIDENCE THAT YOU QUOTE FROM THE PLAY.
  • Your essay will consist of:
    • A THESIS STATEMENT
    • Several paragraphs
    • A topic sentence for each paragraph
    • Evidence (in each paragraph) that proves your topic sentence.
  • LET’S BREAK IT DOWN.
  • What is a THESIS STATEMENT?
    • A sentence that tells what you will prove in your essay
    • It also tells what your main points will be.
    • (I.e., It’s like a topic sentence for the whole essay.)
  • What is a THESIS STATEMENT?
    • It’s like a topic sentence for the whole essay.
    • Just as the topic sentence tells readers what will be discussed in a particular paragraph, the thesis statement alerts readers as to what to expect from the rest of the essay.
  • What is a THESIS STATEMENT?
    • For example:
      • “ In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet , (1) ________________________________, (2) _____________________________, and (3) ________________________________ contribute to the deaths of the two young lovers.”
