Expository Writing:
1. Expository writing is a subject-oriented writing style, in which the main focus of the author is to tell you about a given topic or subject. The author provides relevant facts and figures and does not include his/her opinions. This is one of the most common type of writing styles, which you always see in text books and usually “How – to” articles, in which the author tells you about a given subject, as how to do something.
2. Key Points:
o Expository writing usually explains something in a process
o Expository writing is often equipped with facts and figures
o Expository writing is generally in a logical order and sequence
3. Definition of Expository Writing:
o Expository writing is designed to explain, describe, inform, or share information with the reader via thoughtful analysis of an issue or situation (this format is commonly used in professional work environments). The emphasis in expository writing is on logical progression of thought, organization, and clarity. The structure of the expository essay/paper is held together by the following: a clear, concise, and defined thesis statement (controlling main idea) in the first paragraph of the written work. Every subsequent paragraph of the work should support the thesis statement. The four to five paragraph approach may also be used in expository writing with the following modifications: 1) introduction with background information and thesis statement, 2) two to three supporting paragraphs ∼ each with its’ own point and supporting information which ultimately supports the thesis statement, 3) conclusion or summary paragraph.
4. Expository writing involves the use of third person voice. The writing voice must be consistent throughout the text of this paper.
5. It will be necessary to refer to the sixth edition and second text revision of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2010) when writing the paper.
