I'm getting ready for the second week of conferences.  Many of the students who participated last week had questions regarding the focus of their expository essay.  The main thing that I urged was to make the topic as specific as possible.  General themes like fear, hope, or leadership need to be narrowed down to something manageable for a short 750 word essay.  The other thing that I stressed is to stay away from trying to persuade.  The point of the paper is to help explain.  Here's a page that may be useful as you work on your essay.
