Expository Writing

Hi Everyone,

Below is the expository pillar we are using in class to help us write our expository essay on our inventor. As a class, we have been studying Ben Franklin. I decided to have the class as a whole write an expository essay together on Ben Franklin so the students understand what it looks it and the strategies needed to write an effective essay. We have color coded the parts of the essay. As we read information about Ben Franklin, we highlighted the particular information in the specific color needed.

Students will do the same with their own inventor using this expository pillar to help.

Blue= Introduction

Green= Main idea 1. (Background information, what inspired them to be an inventor)

Purple= Main idea 2.(Information on the invention. choose 1 if your inventor has more than 1 invention)

Red= Main Idea 3.(impact the invention has on the world.)

Blue= Conclusion

Thanks and have a great day!

Ms. Gray
