School Based Assessment (SBA) Document
This section contains a document with detailed information on how to produce a good school-based assessment which is the first step toward passing your ESEC English A exam. Please take some time to view the document in its entirety as the SBA will be worked on simultaneously as other aspects of the CSEC syllabus.

Introduction to Expository Writing
Expository writing As its name implies, is writing that exposes facts. In other words, it’s writing that explains and educates its readers, rather than entertaining or attempting to persuade them. When you read a scholarly article, a textbook page, a news report, or an instructional guide, you’re reading expository writing. Expository writing is writing that aims to inform its reader. As we mentioned above, this includes all types of factual writing, like textbooks, news stories, technical guides, and pieces of business writing. Many journalistic pieces are pieces of expository writing, but not all are—advertorials, opinion pieces, and many pieces of political writing are not pieces of expository writing because their primary goal is something other than providing unbiased facts.

Subject Verb Agreement
Subject-verb agreement is the grammatical rule that the verb or verbs in a sentence must match the number, person, and gender of the subject; in English, the verb needs to match just the number and sometimes the person. For example, the singular subject it and the plural subject they use different versions of the same verb: “it goes . . . ” and “they go . . . ”

The Expository Essay
“Expository” means “intended to explain or describe something.” An expository essay provides a clear, focused explanation of a particular topic, process, or set of ideas. It doesn’t set out to prove a point, just to give a balanced view of its subject matter.

Reading Comprehension
The ability to read, understand and synthesize information is a key component needed to write your CSEC exam. Reading comprehension is the ability to process written text, understand its meaning, and to integrate with what the reader already knows. Reading comprehension relies on two abilities that are connected to each other: word reading and language comprehension.

Equivalent Sentences & Constructing the Expository Essay
An Equivalent sentence is similar in meaning to the original sentence, even thought the structure and words are different. Engaging in in identifying equivalent sentences is an important activity that can be used to improve your paraphrasing skills and, by extension, summary writing skills.

Mid-Term Test
Please complete this test during your regularly scheduled class time.

Expository Writing – The Simple Report
A report is a nonfiction account that presents and/or summarizes the facts about a particular event, topic, or issue. The idea is that people who are unfamiliar with the subject can find everything they need to know from a good report.

Grammar: Sentence Fragments, Run On and Comma Splices
Sentence: a group of words that has a subject and a verb (independent clause) and communicates a complete thought. It begins with a capital letter and ends with an appropriate punctuation mark. Fragments, comma splices, and run-ons are the most common mistakes that people make in their writing. Fragment: A sentence that doesn’t have an independent clause (could be simply a phrase or dependent clause) Comma splices/run-ons: two or more sentences incorrectly written as a single sentence ​ sentences that are jammed together without proper punctuation ​ both have two independent clauses
