Expository Essay

If your students have completed a research project in any subject, they likely need to express what they have learned in an expository essay. Now is a great time to highlight the computational thinking they are doing as they decide how they will structure their essays. They are engaging in Algorithm Design, or designing a series of steps to complete a task (in this case, writing the essay). 

You can use these Google Slides to help walk students through the process of deciding on the structure that best fits their essay. A visual of the 5 paragraph essay (which is an algorithm that is already designed) is included.
