There are several types of Elaboration. <ul><li>Vivid description or example </li></ul><ul><li>Anecdote </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Last year at Halloween, I was running out the door at 5:30, pillowcase in hand, hitting the houses in my neighborhood with my friend Steven. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Statistics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I got 237 individual servings of candy, and it was my highest record yet. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Quotations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>My mother yelled, “Put the candy away!
