A Expository essay is a type of essay in which one is made to explain a process of doing something. The purpose of the expository essay is to explain a topic in a logical and straight forward manner. It present a fair and balanced analysis of a subject based on facts – with no references to the writer’s opinions or emotions. Note that a typical expository writing prompt will use the words “explain” or “define” such as in, write an essay explaining the computer has changed the lives of students”. Notice there is no instruction to form an opinion or argument on whether or not computers have changed students’ lives. You have to explain in plain and simple terms.
