What Is an Explanatory Research Essay?
An Explanatory Research Essay presents a research-based point of view on, in this case, a certain event/social situation. This view does not necessarily have to be one that the writer agrees with, it is a point of view based on research. Here the task of the writer (that’s you) is to (1) accurately summarize and explain the main theories you’ve studied in the course (Noel’s hypothesis, Blauner’s Hypothesis, Myral’s vicious cycle) and (2) apply those theories to analyze and understand particular events and social situations.
The overall goal of an explanatory research essay is to clear up any confusion and present a lucid explanation as to why things happened the way they did based on research/theories. After finishing the essay, the reader should have a clear understanding of the research/theoretical explanation of a certain event/social situation.
