Expository Essays- Whose reality
« on: October 31, 2011, 02:46:54 PM »

Hi guys   ;D

I know that for expository essays each paragraph should contain an idea relating to the prompt.
I am completely confused on what these ideas are.
For example, using last years vce exam prompt for whose reality:

"Sometimes people find themselves living in a world created by other people"

What ideas do you draw from this?? I am unsure what I can write on for each paragraph which exposes the topic.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

"Sometimes people find themselves living in a world created by other people"

I look at context 3 different ways::
The prompt will be either related to subjectivity/illusions, memories or conflict

In the case of this prompt, conflict
Therefore, I would draw upon my 3-4 ideas for the response to this prompt from my conflict plan

1. - Trying to escape her guilt ridden past that is full of promiscuity; Blanche portrays herself as a woman of culture (to be accepted), one proud of her “beauty of mind and richness of the spirit and tenderness of the heart"
2. - Brutal in his manner and his frankness, Stanley sees no need for subtlety or for pretence as the conflict caused by Stanley and Blanche’s different ways of seeing life is inevitable
3. - AN EXTERNAL ISSUE ... i.e. Discuss Galileo and his perceptions as a Philosopher which were discouraged by those of superiority

I'm not a strong English student, but I can rote-learn answers! So therefore that's my plan.
I will change words around and try to address the prompt as clearly as I can, but I will always draw upon my basic issues

Haha costa i don't think i'll fail...  ;)

I'm 99% sure i'll do a creative piece as this is all I have been doing for the whole year. However, I wanted to clarify the way of writing an expository essay in the highly unlikely circumstance that I can't think of anything for the prompt. Hopefully that won't happen.  :-\

When I see a youth thus engaged,—the study appears to me to be in character, and becoming a man of liberal education, and him who neglects philosophy I regard as an inferior man, who will never aspire to anything great or noble.
