Expository writing is used to describe, explain, define or otherwise inform a reader about a specific subject. It’s devoid of opinion or unnecessary descriptive language. The ability to write in an expository manner is a component of many careers, and as such, it's an important skill for students to master. Young students are typically taught to prepare expository writing by following a five-step model. For children just learning to organize their thoughts and write them down, the steps may consist of sentences. Older children may use paragraphs.
I teach special education. I have a group of students that are reading at below grade level, at a 2nd grade level. They struggle with reading comprehension, text structures and organization. The use of graphic organizers and signal words or phrases is an excellent idea to help them visualize what a story is about. Narrative text is hard for my students to comprehend and by adding expository text they can become very confused. Students need to be taught how to identify and analyze expository text so they can plan and know what to expect as they read informational text.
In the course of the essay, your thesis should have been subjected to scrutiny that enables us to emerge with a deeper understanding of the subject. The conclusion should show how you have proven the thesis, illustrating our progress, including any caveats or qualifications that some of the antitheses may have brought to light. It is also a good idea to show why this thesis is important, and speculate on some of its possible implications. These speculations may be followed by a call for further research of the new issues your thesis raises. A conclusion such as this leaves the readers hungering for more, as they are not only persuaded of the validity of your thesis, but also tantalized with new possibilities. This style of conclusion allows for much more creative expression, as there is more room for speculative opinion.
