She adds, “Writing with PROS: How to write an Informative/Explanatory Essay is a resource that focuses on the organization of informative/explanatory essays and explains how to write those essays based on text. It’s laid out in a ‘chunked’ fashion so that you can go through the process step-by-step with examples, Cornell notes, and foldables all along the way.”
