What is expository writing? Expository writing is used to present reasons and explanation about a topic in a step-by-step process. The expository essay should contain a main idea (thesis), supporting details (with transitions) and a conclusion in a logical fashion. Be sure to check your work for grammatical correctness as well! Happy writing!

Wouldn’t it be “Describe” the smile of your mother?
Yup. I should have said “explain what your mother’s smile looks like” or “describe your mother’s smile.” Good catch. Thanks!
