Expository Writing (Victoria and PL)

Define.
A type of oral or written discourse that is used to explain, describe, give information or inform in detail.

Purpose.

Difference between expository texts with narratives and personal recounts
A narrative tells a story about an event, while an expository tells you facts about an event on how to do something. It also can give insight.Expository is where you tell me how to do something. For example, write a paragraph telling me about HOW to play dodgeball. You need to explain the rules to me, and how you make teams, etc. Narrative is when you tell me a story. Tell me about something that happened to you the last time you play dodgeball, write about what happened to you and how you felt about it. Personal recount, according to the same storyline, is when you RECALL your experience in playing dodgeball.


Examples of Expository Writing
It can range from topics like “How to play Dodgeball" to topics like, “Cheating In Singapore”
