8th graders have a writing test coming up and they have to write an expository essay.
The biggest problem is, I don't know what that is...help! If you can tell me and also give me an example.
Thanks

    It is an essay presenting facts and conclusions, instead of your feelings and opinions.

    Basically they're a plain essay that you write based on the topic you're given? Because as i understand from that site, you can write quite a lot of stuff?

    Bob Pursley is right. Expository means "explanatory." You state your thesis at the end of your introduction and then you write 3 or 4 paragraphs in support of that thesis and then you write a conclusion.
