Be aware that expository essays are not the only kind of writing assignments you will receive during your time at Pratt. Below you will find a list of different kinds of assignments. In the future we hope to offer guidelines for many of these kinds of assignments on this site. For now, however, a few pieces of advice for if you do encounter one of these other kinds of papers...
- Ask your teacher for clear guidelines of what he/she is expecting your paper to look like and accomplish.
- State the point of your paper at the beginning of the paper even if a formal introduction is not required.
- Always aim for a logical flow for your thoughts. Use the process and preparation section of this site to help you generate ideas and then lay them out in a sequence that allows the reader to follow your train of thought and development easily.
