The Expository Essay
2
What is an expository essay?
  • 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.

What is an expository essay?
  • 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 "I" is not usually found within the
    essay.

4
Expository essays also have a distinct format.
  • The main idea (thesis statement) must be narrow
    enough to be supported within the essay.
  • Each supporting paragraph must have a main
    supporting idea and all other sentences must
    relate directly to it.
  • Transition words or phrases are important as they
    help the flow and reinforce the logic.

5
Expository essays also have a distinct format.
  • 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.
  • Never introduce new material in the conclusion.
