If you are anything like me you will want to make sure that you are fully clued up with all of the facts before embarking upon the process of writing your essay. An expository essay requires you to investigate an idea and then look at and evaluate the evidence. It definitely makes sense that you would want to see some great expository essay examples before knuckling down.
The thing is, if you have never previously written one then it can be incredibly difficult trying to figure out which ones are great and which ones are bad. So, here are some sources that you will definitely be able to trust:
I would urge anyone wanting to easily access a broad range of essays from across the world in a heartbeat to try out Google Scholar. Not only is it free to use, it is also incredibly easy and you can pick and choose from a wide selection. Whatever your thoughts on selling your soul to a corporate giant, this site is not to be missed.
Why hasn’t your teacher already provided you with some samples? They should have an abundance of them floating around and I am fairly certain that they will have written one or two expository essays themselves throughout the course of their academic career! Your teacher should easily be able to get their hands on enough examples to go around the whole class.
When you think about the size of your academic institution, ask yourself just how many example essays are likely to be kicking around! I am sure that your student union will be able to point you in the right direction, as will your friends, many of whom will also have friends and acquaintances in halls of residence who might be willing to share, either free of charge, or for a small price the information with you.
Regardless of the subject matter, I am sure that you will have plenty of text books that you can turn to for samples. Books are written and constructed precisely for this reason. If by some freak of nature you haven’t already been given a list of suitable reading material by your teacher, then you should easily be able to find suitable titles by searching online. You don’t have to pay a fortune for text books. They can easily be picked up at charity shops and flea markets.
