a Sea Captain's View - Part 1 - The Expository Paragraph
Pre Class Assignment: Completion/review of By the Old Mill Stream - Lesson II
There are three basic types of paragraphs in writing:
narrative, descriptive, and expository.
NARRATIVE: The narrative paragraph tells a story, just like a narrator in a play.
DESCRIPTIVE: The descriptive paragraph paints a picture. It describes a person, place, thing, or idea.
EXPOSITORY: The expository paragraph "exposes" things about a subject. It is also sometimes called an information paragraph because it gives information about a person, place, thing, or idea.
Let's discuss the expository paragraph. It gives
information about a given topic. But expository paragraphs can be written
with style and in different ways. An expository paragraph doesn't have
to be dry and boring. In fact, some of the best expository papers are those
that have a unique slant and grab the reader's attention. When you read
one of those, you hardly even realize all the facts you are learning because
the paper is so much fun!
