What Is An Expository Essay
  • Created by Essay-Academy.com

An expository essay is an essay type where you
explain some information to the readers.
1. Choosing A Topic
The first step is choosing a topic for your
expository essay. Think about the most
interesting themes and problems for you. You have
to be a master in your issue, as you write an
expository essay. For example, if you are
interested in folk studies, you may write an
expository essay on the topic What Are The Folk
2. Thinking About The Audience
Thinking about the audience is a very important
item, if you write an essay (especially, in the
case if you write an expository essay). Suppose
your potential readers are the doctors of
philological sciences. In this case you shouldnt
start your expository essay with a definition of
the folk texts like this Folk texts are oral
and traditional texts.
  • Such a definition of the folk texts is
    appropriate for boys and girls in primary school.
  • Instead of it, you may say The thought that the
    folk texts are only the texts of folk origin is
    wrong. The origin of the text is not so important
    for the folklorists the main thing they pay
    attention is the transformation of the text. For
    example, if a song has a concrete author, but we
    know different variants (transformations) of this
    song, we may interpret it as a folk text.

3. Reading The Literature Connected With Your
Even if you know how to make a good explanation
of the subject of your essay, it will be useful
for you to read some literature on your topic.
Anyway, you will learn a lot of new and
interesting information for you.
You may compare some old and new (including
recently published) textbooks, monographs,
articles, etc. Try to make a conclusion how an
understanding of the folk texts was changing
during the certain period of time. You also can
make a comparative analysis of the definition of
the term the folk texts in different countries
of the world.
4. Writing An Expository Essay
An expository essay usually has a structure like
a five paragraph essay. This essay type has, as
you can guess, five paragraphs an introductory
paragraph, the first body paragraph, the second
body paragraph, the third body paragraph and a
concluding paragraph.
While writing an expository essay, remember the
golden rule you have to give your reader some
new information, so avoid banal and general
phrases. You may choose an interesting topic
for your expository essay right now!
