Your assignment is to write an expository essay on any topic from the following:
1. If you are given the chance to talk to a famous person dead or alive, who will you
choose and what will be the topic of conversation?
2. Describe the long-term effects of global warming
3. Explain how social distancing is going to be the new way of life in the coming future
The structure of the expository essay relies on the following:
ï‚· A purpose to inform the reader and present an objective explanation
ï‚· An introduction (1-2 paragraphs) that invites reader interest, provides background
information that clearly portrays the topic, and includes a well-formulated thesis
ï‚· Body paragraphs that further develop and support your thesis (central idea) of your
essay, documented with in-work citations (in proper MLA format).
ï‚· A conclusion that provides the reader with a sense that the writer has fully explained,
developed, and illustrated the central idea (thesis) of the essay. The conclusion should
reiterate the introduction (not word for word but relate to its relevance), reemphasize
the central focus of the essay, and suggest a course of action.
