Tenth-graders wrote the following general expository essay topics. Students can practice writing these topics or use the list to come up with topics of their own. The important thing to remember is that these expository essays are based on facts rather than the writer's beliefs or feelings.
Perhaps a small niche might be found for the Five Paragraph Essay in timed short essay exams, as are common in college. The format is easy to remember and follow, so when pressed for time, one can resort to it to produce a quick, organized essay. However, if time is truly a constraint, a three paragraph essay would be a much better option, to save yourself useless repetition in the introduction and conclusion. One or two introductory sentences in the first paragraph, followed by a couple of concluding sentences in the third paragraph, will suffice. This will allow you to focus on the meat of your argument in the body, upon the substance of which you will be graded, assuming your instructor is not a format-driven zombie.
Whatever topic you choose, you should pick the subject you are really interested in, it will show in the exploratory essay you write and will make it more interesting to the readers.
