In the following assignment, you will write your expository essay on a topic of your choosing.
Expository essays may also be called cause and effect essays because they explain how a cause (or multiple causes) leads to a certain effect. For example, the writer Jack London made observations and took notes on his trip to the Yukon Territory/Klondike during the years of the Gold Rush. He captured in writing the lifestyles of the miners searching for gold, often relating how their failure to see how the bitter cold (the cause) resulted in hypothermia (the effect).
You will write an expository essay describing and analyzing cause and effect. Remember, a cause produces a result, and an effect occurs because of a cause. Select a topic that demonstrates a cause and effect.
Cause: Child obesity in impoverished communities in the United States of America is rising.
Effect: Access to fresh produce and other healthy food is limited in lower income communities.
When you write an expository essay, make sure you use reliable research to lend validity to your position or case.
