Step 1 :
Before you write any essay,be sure to draft an outline. This is SUPER important, so that u won't write anything out of your topic.

Step 2 :
Expository essay is interesting,seriously,IT IS!

First, in the introduction, write something about your topic. Generalized it. Don't make it too long. At the last sentence of your introduction, write the keywords for your point (usually 3 points).This sentence is called Thesis statement. You can't skip this. This is a MUST.

Second, in your body pharagraph 1,2 and 3,the first sentence is your point keyword. This sentence is called Topic sentence. After the topic sentence,then u have to elaborate your point clearly in each pharagraph.

Third, your conclusion must have those 3 topic sentences BUT you have to Rephrase them.

Tada........done! Alhamdulillah. That is an expository essay. As easy as 1,2,3 and now here you go =) done.

[ I am sorry,I could not publish my essay because my classmates and I had to write it just like sitting an exam paper. So it's hand written and I don't have the soft copy. ]

I hope this is useful,insyaAllah! ^_^
Beautiful! ^_^ its mapple tree.
