(Bryan Chang and Nimalan) Expository Writing

What is expository writing and its purpose?

Exposition is a type of oral or written discourse that is used to explain, describe, give information or inform.

Eg.

1)A Definition of Pantomime, by Julian Barnes
2)Hot Hands, by Stephen Jay Gould
3)Process Analysis in Barry Lopez's "Migration"

How are expository texts different from narrative texts and personal recounts?

Expository essays explains a process while a narrative and a personal recount tells a story.
