To expose
To “Expose”…

Explanatory Prose.

  • Not Argumentative because purpose is not to convince but to EXPLAIN;

  • Not Persuasion but CLARIFICATION fro UNDERSTANDING

    Often a combination of some or all of above.


Approaches or ways to expose
Approaches or Ways to ‘EXPOSE’?

  • Causal Analysis:

  • Involves assessing WHY something happened/developed the way it did and HOW?

  • Concerns consequences of action/effects of a situation--- both present and future.

    Causal Analysis is specifically a type of analytical thinking.


Process analysis
Process Analysis

Is an extension of C.A. but in progressive

pattern, i.e.:

  • It ranges over time

  • It explains events by considering their relation to one another, sequentially and logically.


Process organisation how do you go about it
Process Organisation: How do you go about it?

  • First: give directions, ie, what are your over-arching ideas? Write your Thesis Statement

  • Offer explanation with elaborations with a stand, with intent.

    You many employ a narrative stand; or present a list of things to do or a set of considerations to bear in mind.


Illustration exemplification
Illustration / Exemplification:

  • Use these to support explanations and elaborations, as they CLARIFY by illuminating you point, shedding light on the subject in question.


Comparison
Comparison

This is definitely useful as subject requires 2 things / aspects SIMULTANEOUSLY to set one off against another in order to gain clearer insights/understanding. These can also be counter examples.


How to compare two methods
How to Compare? Two Methods:

  • BLOCK method: Two halves of comparison discussed separately, one after another:

    Structure:

    Subject A;

    Subject B;

    Conclusion


Expository writing

  • Alternating method:

    Introduction

    Point 1 : Subject A & B

    Point 2: “

    Point 3: “

    Final Point

    Conclusion


Analogy metaphorical method
Analogy (Metaphorical) method:

It’s an extended illustration--- but more as a partial similarity or correspondence between TWO things/ ideas/ aspects, etc


Classification
Classification:

Requires CLOSE LOOK at terms and aspects. It’s the making of careful distinctions and avoidance of over-simplified explanations.

To classify is to group or categorise, which enables us to organise info, to order or divide masses of data and experience.
