Expository Writing Pointers

Have an INTRODUCTION—clever, attention-grabbing, BUT focused on your thesis

THESIS—you must have a clear controlling idea! State it directly, but artfully.

EXPLANATION—stay on topic. Might try:

Historical reference (even current events) to support

Literary reference to support

Logical/thoughtful reflection to support

Focus on IDEAS about the topic! Do NOT turn it into a personal narrative.

CONCLUSION—prove your point + connect back to thesis!
