The three parts of any effective introduction
1.-HOOK: an attention-grabbing strategy that engages the reader (see separate
list). Effective hooks typically “begin somewhere else”
2-BRIDGE: A group of sentences that smoothly
shift the focus of the writing from the hook to the
3-MAIN TOPIC of the essay. An effective bridge is
perhaps the trickiest component of an engaging
introduction, as there is not one clear way to
accomplish this transition.
THESIS NOTE: The thesis does not
have to be the last sentence
of the introduction, but for
now you will put them there.
Thesis statements contain a
SUBJECT and OPINION. They
need to be an ARGUMENT the
essay will explain and prove.
