Writing an Informative Essay

Writing an Informative Essay
The goal of an informative essay is not to present your opinion, but "to inform or educate the audience on a given topic"
Your informative essay might

• explain something most readers won’t know

• present the latest research on a topic

• define a complex term

• compare and contrast opposing viewpoints

• analyze a cause-effect relationship

• teach readers how to solve a problem or apply knowledge

For this course, your informative essay should be 3–5 pages in length and use at least four sources. You should also use a formal academic writing style, avoiding contractions like won't and presenting evidence objectively instead of saying I think or relying on personal experience.
