Mind-mapping, Expository, Logical, Complex, Balanced


Purpose: This study is about inadequate acquisition of second language in the subject of Expository Writing-I among the graduates of public sector university. The primary purpose of writing exposition is to educate reader, not to fascinate while presenting clear and organized subject matter. This dilemma has turned into a grave issue when it comes to teach the subject of Expository Writing-I.

Design/Methodology/Approach: According to researcher, Buzan (2021)
mind-mapping is a pioneering method which incredibly helps students to expand their expository writing tools by assimilating new knowledge to their prior knowledge using real-life videos, vlogs, visuals, graphics, pictures, blogs, picture story, etc. Results of this study support the hypothesis that the mind-mapping method enhanced expository writing skill and helped research participants of experimental group to expose fact in clear and logical manner than students in the control group.

Findings: Significant differences were found in achievement test scores of the two groups.

Implications/Originality/Value: So, it is concluded that mind mapping method facilitated to understand complex ideas in a logical, balanced, simple and objective manner for teaching every subject.
