So this should tell you

So this should tell you…

  • That although an expository essay has lots of detail, description and general storytelling, you STILL need to have solid reasons that you support in your two body paragraphs.


Body paragraphs

Body Paragraphs

  • Details!

  • Description!

  • Examples

  • Explanation

  • Scenario

  • Anecdote

  • Sophisticated Words/Phrases

  • Elaborate!


Figurative language

Figurative Language!

  • We went over this in class yesterday. It is any kind of language that goes beyond the literal.

  • USE SOME!

  • Underline it so I can give you credit for it!


Conclusion what should it do

Conclusion – What should it do?

  • clearly connects introduction and body of the paper.

  • gives a sense of completion.

  • does more than restate your arguments and position.

  • gives the reader something to think about.


How to do it

How to do it?

  • What if? Question and answer (scenario)

  • Restate points and expand to encompass all of humanity or how it would effect all of humanity.


Transitions

Transitions

  • We haven’t covered this as much, but the use of sophisticated transitions is important on the HSPE.

  • Use your transition sheet and add them in, especially at the beginning of each paragraph to connect it to the one before.

  • Moving past the transition sheet, you can also restate a main point from the previous paragraph. “As well as villainous, The Joker is also….”


To make sure

To make sure….

  • By next Tuesday at the end of class, you must have three essays submitted to Vantage.

  • Cyrano essay, a persuasive essay, and an expository essay.

  • I WILL BE WANTING REVISION – so also save them in your file. We will not be able to access Vantage when we get back from break.
