Expository writing is a way to share information. You begin with two important parts:  

  1. The first part is the introduction or topic sentence. This sentence introduces who, what, where, and when the information is about. 
  2. The body is the next part of your writing. This part expands on what all the information is about. In the video How to Plan & Write an Expository Essay below, you will see a visual model of writing a five paragraph expository essay:
