The success of a good narrative essay, of a good story, depends on the specific details a writer uses. This is a great example of how a brief, weak narrative essay can be improved by including rich, specific details. Students can see four drafts of this story and how it improves with each rewrite.

Expository Writing

by Jackie DeLorenzo

This lesson will be taught because in the intermediate grades, expository essay writing is ongoing. In the future, students will have to know how to write an expository essay in order to complete certain assignments, as well as tests given to them. In addition, the knowledge of expository writing will further students’ abilities to incorporate important information, details, and explicit explanations into their writing, which will be required of them in the third grade and in the years to follow.
