Expository Writing
  • Key Difference Between Exposition and Narration
  • Expository, non-fiction, informational writing
    does not have characters, a setting, or other
    story elements.

6
Expository Writing
  • When to Write in an Expository Style
  • When an author creates a piece of writing, he or
    she has a purpose for writing
  • If an author wants to share information with you,
    he or she will write an expository piece.

7
Expository Writing
  • Identifying Exposition
  • Remember expository, informational, and
    non-fiction are all synonyms.
  • The author will not share his or her opinion on
    the topic.

8
Expository Writing
  • Methods of Development
  • Definition
  • Compare and Contrast
  • Classification
  • Example
  • Cause and Effect
  • Process Analysis

9
Expository Writing
  • Elements of an Expository Writing
  • A clear, concise, and defined thesis statement
    that occurs in the first paragraph of the essay
  • Body paragraphs that include evidential support
  • Evidential support (whether factual, logical,
    statistical, or anecdotal).

10
Expository Writing
  • Paragraph Structure Topic Sentence
  • Begin with a topic sentence thats broad enough
    to include all the ideas of the paragraph, but
    narrow enough to be limited to a single paragraph.

Ex. Overloading your schedule with too many hours
of class may cause you to achieve less than you
hoped.
11
Expository Writing
  • Paragraph Structure Supporting Idea
  • The topic sentence is then developed by the first
    of two supporting ideas

First, you may spend so many hours attending
class that you have very little time for the
research and homework that university classes
require.
12
Expository Writing
  • Paragraph Structure Example or Illustration
  • The supporting idea is then developed with a
    real-life example or quotation from an outsider

Felicia, a mother of twins, added extra hours of
class to her schedule because she wanted to
finish her degree as soon as possible. However,
the extra hours gave her no time at all to study,
and she had to re-sit a course, thus losing time
instead of gaining it.
13
Expository Writing
  • Paragraph Structure Concluding Statement
  • A concluding sentence ties up the thoughts and
    drives home the main idea using new vocabulary to
    emphasize the topic sentence

Thus, consider carefully the number of courses
you sign up for an overload may spell disaster.
