Transcript of Analytical Expository Essay

A term for a form of writing that
conveys information and explains ideas.
I went to the candy store and saw
gummy bears, skittles, peppermints,
taffy, and loads of chocolate.
Examines or describes the
small parts of the whole topic.
In analytical writing,
you still describe what you've seen
or what happened, however, you add an
explanation of the emotions and ideas
that you are feeling.
I went down to the candy store, and I felt
so excited when I saw all the
mouth-watering sweets on display.
In expository you only describe
what you see or what happened.
What is an
Analytical Expository Essay?

Step 1
Select your topic.
Try to pick something manageable, that will fit within the time specifications of your essay.

Step 2
Organize your ideas.
You can do this in several different ways: lists, webs, graphic organizers of your ideas and support for the topic.

Step 3
Write a thesis statement.
This is the single most important sentence of your essay.
The thesis statement explains what your central argument or essay is about.
You will use this idea to develop everything else in your essay.

Now we're going to combine the two!

An analytical expository essay
should contain an:

1. Introduction with a well formed thesis statement
2. Main Body with support for your thesis statement
3. Conclusion restating your points on the topic

Step 1
Write your introduction.
The introduction must begin with a "hook" to capture the reader's interest. Connect your opening sentence by explaining the topic. Finally, create the thesis statement which details what the essay will be about.

Step 2
Write a paragraph.
Each body paragraph should support details and opinions stated in your thesis and provide information to back up each detail. Use transition words to flow from each sentence and between each paragraph.

Step 3
Write a concluding paragraph for your essay.
The conclusion must restate the thesis, using different wording. Reword each detail in support of the thesis, and bring the essay to a close.
Also, be sure to never introduce any new material in the conclusion

Now let's look at an example analytical expository
