Hi, I need an informational expository essay and essay outline to go along with it following the format provided. Here are some example topics: “nutrition, yoga benefits, effective study habits, living in another country, specific musical interests, and many other topics.” I submitted the requirements of how the essay and outline should be written. It has to be in that format
Begin Formal Essay #1 – Informative Essay – by working through the writing process as described in the Norton text, chapters 26 though 29 (generate ideas and text and organize your ideas with a formal outline).
During the previous weeks’ work, you learned or reviewed that formal essay writing requires a purpose. The purpose of an Informative Essay is to educate your reader on a topic. As you are the educator for this essay, select a topic with which you are quite familiar, something you know well. Students in previous English Composition classes have written about nutrition, yoga benefits, effective study habits, living in another country, specific musical interests, and many other topics.
For Formal Essay #1, an Informative Essay, sources may not be used. No need to research a topic on which you are “in the know.” Essays submitted with citations and sources are not acceptable.
“Informative essays must never express your opinion or try to convince others to take a certain action or stance. That role is expressly reserved for persuasive essays. Of course, if your informative essay is interesting enough, it may move readers to learn more about the subject, but they’ll have to come to that on their own, thanks to the wealth of interesting information you present” (“Examples of Informative Essays”).
