The Book of the Lion Expository Essay

The expository essay assignment is very straightforward. You should first choose a question that is related to the Crusades that you would like to answer. A good example would be, "Why did King Richard choose to execute the prisoners from Acre?" If you cannot think of a good question, ask Mr. Brunken to help you.

Once you have your question, you should do some research on your question to find your answer with enough supporting details to prove it, and then write your essay in proper essay format. See the diagrams below to help you with proper essay format (in case you forgot.) Your final essay can be typed or handwritten. Due Jan. 15.
