Information on Expository Writing

Expository writing is a type of writing which is used to inform, explain, describe or define the author's subject to 
the reader. 

It explains something so that all of pieces of writing about explaining the sequence of tasks to be handled in order to achieve something can be classified under expository writing.

"Not all chemicals are bad"
"How to cook an egg"

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

- Narrative text's main purpose it to capture and gain hold of the readers attention, but it can be used to teach or inform. 

- Expository text main purpose to explain a point to the reader.

- Personal recounts are written in the first person point of view and are real life stories.

EXTRA: Descriptive text can be used in all forms of writing to create a vivid expresion of a person, place, object or event. For example it can be used to describe and place in the world and why it is special.
