1 CP11 The Three Little “Modes of Writing”

2 Expressive Writing (to express)
“Expressive writing is personal writing. It expresses and explores the personal feelings of the writer. The piece may attempt to answer a question, state an opinion or recount the writer’s personal experiences. Many times, expressive writing does all of these.”

3 Types/Forms of Expressive Writing

4 Expository Writing (to expose)
Expository writing gives information, explains, clarifies, or defines something. Critical support and key facts demonstrate the writers understanding of the topic.

5 Types/Forms of Expository Writing
Expository/Explanatory essay Argumentative Analytical Compare/Contrast essay How-to essay News Article Interview Informative Research

6 Persuasive Writing (to persuade)
Persuasive writing takes a stand on a debatable topic. Unlike its brother, expository writing, expressive writing does much more than simply explain a topic. Persuasive writing explains a topic AND it persuades the reader to take a specific stand in regards to the topic. This type of writing uses logical evidence, plays off of the readers emotions and morals/beliefs in order to prove its point.

7 Types/Forms of Persuasive Writing
