Question description

In this week's discussion, we will focus on developing an interesting and attention-grabbing introduction paragraph. The conclusion paragraph is equally important, in making sure your paper ends well. In addition to the information in Chapter 4, there are several resources in the Webliography area that you may find useful as you work on your introduction and conclusion paragraphs for the process analysis essay.

A good introduction paragraph should:

  • Introduce the topic
  • Create interest
  • Provide necessary background information
  • Preview the rest of the paper
  • Include (or conclude with) a clear one-sentence thesis statement (which you developed in week 2, presented now after any necessary revisions)

The introduction can use one of many techniques, including posing a thought-provoking question, presenting a description or misconception, sharing a rousing quote or shocking statistic, providing a short summary of a personal experience, or opening with a proverb. 

The conclusion paragraph is also important in finishing your paper in an engaging and satisfying way.

A good conclusion paragraph should:

  • Emphasize the main points made in the paper without repeating them
  • Rephrase and restate (but not repeat) your thesis statement 
  • Leave the reader in a memorable way
 

After reviewing the information above and in Chapter 4 of the textbook, please answer all of the questions below in your main post.


1. You may have heard the saying, "you never get a second chance to make a first impression." This is also true for essay writing. Why are introductions important?


2. Review the examples of lead-ins on pages 79-81. Choose one strategy and draft a lead-in that you will use at the beginning of the introduction for your process analysis essay. Post the entire introductory paragraph for your process analysis essay, including the lead-in you developed. Make sure your current thesis statement is the last sentence of the introduction. Which lead-in strategy did you use, and why did you choose it? Do you feel your introduction as a whole is effective? Why or why not? 


3. Review the ideas for conclusion paragraphs on pages 84-85. Which strategy do you think would be most effective for the conclusion paragraph in your process analysis essay, and why?
