4 Types of Writing continued

So how did you get on with the course? If you want to try again, just click the quiz button below again. If not, just scroll on down. But before you do either, here’s just a wee reminded of the 4 types of writing we’ve looked at.

  • Expository – Writing in which the author’s purpose is to inform or explain the subject to the reader.
  • Persuasive – Writing that states the opinion of the writer and attempts to influence the reader.
  • Narrative – Writing in which the author tells a story either as fact or fiction.
  • Descriptive – A type of expository writing that uses the five senses to paint a picture for the reader. This writing incorporates imagery and specific details.


However you got on with the quiz, hopefully you at least learned something new from it. Let’s move on to sentences and punctuation. Who sighed then?! Its gonna be fine I promise!
