Whether it’s a summary of a science experiment, a research paper about the Civil War or a description of a favorite place, all expository writing explains something to the audience. Writing Expository Essays presents the basics of expository writing, from composing the introduction and thesis statement to assembling body paragraphs to writing an effective conclusion. Student writers discuss the various ways they organize the body of expository essays, depending on purpose and audience, by using structural organizers such as the journalist’s questions, strongest to weakest supporting evidence, sensory details, cause and effect, compare and contrast, chronological order or logical or spatial organization. Incorporating quotations effectively to add color to writing or to support ideas with an expert opinion is also highlighted. A teacher's guide is included. Closed-captioned.
