To get started on an expository essay, consider a problem or issue of concern related to your chosen topic category ( technology: The hard drive issue and lost data on it ) that you would like to “expose” to an audience.
Some questions you should consider addressing in the essay: What is the problem or issue? Why is it a problem/issue? Who is affected by it? How are people affected? When did it become an issue? Where does the issue exist?
Once you have identified a thesis, think about what types of support will help your readers to better understand the viewpoint you are expressing. Will you need to describe a cause/effect relationship between things? Will you need to compare/contrast? Is there anything that must be defined for an average audience? These are just a few of the areas of discussion you may wish to include in your essay.
Use these and other questions to consider how best you to explain your viewpoint to your readers. Organize your ideas in a logical manner to formulate the body paragraphs (support) in your essay.
Finally, use your conclusion to readdress your thesis in light of the supporting ideas you have provided in the body of the essay. The conclusion can also offer implications (other related matters to think about or seek more information on) or applications (possible actions that can be taken on the issue).
PLEASE NOTE: Try not to treat this like an argument essay, in which you will be providing a SOLUTION to the problem or issue. For this essay, focus simply on describing the problem or issue to help your readers better understand it. In your next essay, the argument essay, you will have plenty of time to discuss solutions.
Your draft should meet the following guidelines:
· Include an introduction with a clearly stated thesis, supporting body paragraphs with topic sentences, and a conclusion.
· Be formatted in MLA style and include citations for any outside sources.
· Be a minimum of 750 words in length.
