Oftentimes students struggle to distinguish the difference between narrative and expository writing. Therefore this unit is intended to help 4th grade students understand what expository writing truly is, the purpose of expository writing and how it impacts their lives and the lives of others around them. Through composing two expository papers of their own, students will learn that expository texts are the basis for obtaining knowledge and that authors of expository texts develop a greater self-identity and gain perspective as they write expository texts.
