If you are a modern student who is a product of the public education system, then you have probably done quite a bit of expository writing over the course of your academic career. Which is fantastic, because expository writing helps prepare you for other types of academic writing; but it is also horrible, because an expository essay is not really enough for higher-level academic writing assignments. Our writing guides are written in a way to help the average student bridge the gap between the generic writing skills they have been practicing their entire academic careers and the specific types of writing that colleges and universities want from their students. We break down each type of assignment and tell students how to tackle it, usually including examples so that students can see how to put the core concepts into practice. So, look for the type of assignment you have been given, read through the writing guide, and consult it while you are writing. The end result will be a better essay that matches an instructor’s expectations and goes beyond the generic expository essay format.
