• Catch the reader's interest (using a hook)
• Introduce the thesis statement
• Explain your essay's organization
(Your introduction can also provide some background information, if you want.)
Homework for Friday's lesson is to have your introduction (about 120-200 words) finished and typed for our class. Use the style that we learned in class. If you missed this lesson, you should look at the example introductions on the handout. Your writing should be double-spaced on A4 paper and it cannot have any spelling mistakes (-1 point for each mistake). This homework is worth 5 points.
We will also need the handout below. Please download it, print it out and bring it to our lesson.
