The Beauty of the Informative Essay

Have you ever noticed that your high school students sometimes know more than they give themselves credit for? By high school, many students are well-read and know information about a wide variety of topics. Furthermore, they are capable of doing extensive research and learning interesting things from diverse sources. One way that high school students can express their expertise while also practicing the writing process is by writing informative essays. Informative essays follow an essay structure while offering information from research and personal knowledge about a specific topic. They sometimes include more personal reflection on the topic than a traditional research paper would, but their major focus is on informing the reader about the topic. This lesson offers informative essay topics that will get your students going with their research and writing.
