Crafting Expository Argument focuses on providing secondary students the universal writing skills required for producing the expository essay. The approach to teaching writing found in this text weaves practical grammar instruction into the writing process. Annotated writing samples, all of which are student-written, illustrate the process by which young writers create clear, coherent prose, precise topic sentences and thesis statements, and extensively elaborated supporting details. The editing symbols the author uses will facilitate productive communication among young writers and their instructors during the revision stage of composition.
