Expository Essay Titles

Excerpt from Essay Titles :


An essay that requires one to do a bit of research, make a claim and back that claim up with data is an expository essay.  Whether it is a how-to essay, a descriptive essay, a cause and effect essay, or an argumentative essay, the writing will involve laying out the facts for the reader.  For that reasons, expository essay titles should clearly identify the subject of the essay and give a notion of the argument that will be made in the essay.  The title of this genre of writing is not a place to be vague or ambiguous.  The title should be clear, direct, informative (like the essay), and as telling of the position of the author as possible.  There should be nothing misleading or ambiguous about the title of this kind of essay.  Here are a few examples to see what we mean.

Expository essay titles should get right to the heart of the matter in a few words.  No need for ambiguity or cuteness.  The goal here is to tell the reader what the essay will be about and what position you’re taking as the author.  That will be enough either to hook the reader or tell the reader that what he’s looking for might best be found somewhere…
