That Catalog Description defines the purpose and goals of our class. The textbook we are using
supports these purposes and goals. This first week, we are not using our textbook, although you
WILL need it the second week.
For our Week 1 assignment, you are to write an expository essay. Expository basically means
to explain or inform – to present information about a subject. This type of writing is based on
facts and is free of personal prejudices and beliefs – UNLESS those are backed by facts. In its
simplest form, an expository essay contains:
• Introduction, that introduces the central idea/article/subject that you will discuss in your
• Main Body, where you present evidence and information. This is the main part, the
‘meat’ of the essay, and should be the longest section of your essay.
• Conclusion, your summation and closing
• **The central purpose of an expository essay is to prove/support an argument or idea.**
As expressed in our Catalog Description, we will study systems analysis, and the things that
pertain to that subject. For your writing assignment, you are to find a specific current technology
topic, such as those discussed in the three links I have included below (they are several years old,
but still good topics). Research the topic you have chosen, such as the many lawsuits against
Uber. Research the topic you have chosen, NOT the article, the TOPIC. Research means
locating and reading information from various websites, such as Forbes, Time, news websites,
company websites themselves, Fortune, etc. Once you have read about and understand your
topic, write an essay using the guidelines below.
Your paper should consist of:
• A current specific technology topic – you are not going to base your paper off an article,
you base it off the IDEA or TOPIC behind the article. For example, the article “Uber’s
never-ending stream of lawsuits” is not the basis of your essay, it is the beginning of your
research on the TOPIC.
• The three main parts of an expository essay above
• 800 words in length – less than the required count will result in a lesser grade *note* this
document has 658 words
• Double spaced, 12pt font, 1” margins
• Include either a header or footer with your name and page number
• Contain a cover page and a references page
• Use citations when needed -- I’m not the Citation Police so relax
Page 2 of 2
• Free of grammar/spelling errors
I shared a generic Writing Assignment Rubric that is in the Course Files tab in BlackBoard.
Basically, use complete sentences, but the list above is what I’m concerned with, not your
sentence structure. Your completed paper will be submitted through the BlackBoard link under
the Week 1 folder in the Assignments tab.
*NOTE* As mentioned, you can write this using your native language.
