The second element of an exploratory essay I think is important is “The key to effective exploratory writing is to create a tension between alternate views” (Pearson 108). I think that this in an important element in exploratory writing because creating tension between alternate views allows the writer to provide different angles to the problem. By showing two different angles of a problem, you are giving the reader two sides of the story instead of only one. When the reader is given two sides of the story, there are more ideas, opinions, and points that the reader can now think about.
The third element of an exploratory essay I think is important is “In either case, the goal when writing with an exploratory aim is to reproduce the research and thinking process, taking the readers on the same emotional journey you have just traveled” (Pearson 113). I think that this is important when writing an exploratory essay because you need to connect with the readers. If you don’t connect with the readers your essay will not intrigue the reader and they will not be able to relate to your essay. I think this is an important part in writing an exploratory essay because the whole point in presenting your argument or problem is for the reader to read about and understand the point.
