Teaching Expository Writing. Curriculum Publication No. 16.
Murphy, Richard
Noting that effective writing requires organization, honesty, and personal experiences, this booklet offers suggestions for teaching students to write expository essays that are serious and truthful. The first section of the booklet suggests ways to teach students to organize their ideas, while the second section discusses both the value of teaching students to integrate personal experience with exposition and the appropriate use of personal narrative. The third section describes ways to help students get so involved with their subject that they become expert, develop a genuine intention to write, and consequently care for the truth of what they say.
