18 Intriguing Expository Essay Topics Related To Current Events

Expository essays on current events will seek to explain and inform your reader about an event of your choice. So, you will want to pick a topic that will interest both you and your reader. Picking an exciting topic – something you really care about-- and it will shine through in the writing.

How to Write an Expository Essay About Current Issues/Current Events

In an expository essay, you set forth an idea, explain a current event, or argue that something needs to be done about a current issue in society. For example, in the “going organic” essays below (topics one and two), you could argue that we need to begin going or growing organic as new evidence suggests that we could lead healthier lives and prolong the life of the planet as well. Think of this essay as a speech that you may want to use documented evidence with from respected sources if your teacher wants more of a researched expository essay. Otherwise, you could simply use a very informed opinion.
