Uses of Expository Writing
The different parts of an expository essay can be looked at like a traffic light. The topic sentence is green because it tells the reader that you are ready to “go,” or that the essay is starting. Your three main reasons are yellow because you are slowing down and giving reasons that support the topic sentence. Your detailed explanations are red, because you are stopping and explaining your reasons. Lastly, your conclusions are green because you are going back to the topic sentence to make you that you are still talking about the topic sentence in your conclusion.
