  • 4 Parts of a Introduction 1. Lead/Attention Getter: Gets the reader’s attention and explains the topic 2. Structure: Gives background of what you will write about 3. Thesis: gives your argument or the important reason why you are writing
  • 5 What do you have to do when you write your lead? 1. Get the reader’s attention 2. Present your topic 3. Connect with your audience

  • 10 GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL!!!! 0 Studies show that people who graduate from high school will earn at least $500,000 more in their lifetime than people who do not. 0 Staying in school will determine whether or not you get the $500,000.
  • 11 Well, did I get your attention? 0 This is an example of one way to hook your reader in the introduction: asking a question. 0 You can ask a rhetorical question that draws the reader into wanting to read further to discover the answer to the question. 0 Ask an interesting question that you will answer in your essay.
  • 12 More examples of question leads
  • 13 Have you ever wondered how you would survive if you found yourself alone in the jungle? How would you defend yourself against predators? What would you eat? Where would you find water? Read Lord of the Flies to see just how a group of teenagers manage to survive! Evaluative Writing

  • 17 Discuss! Discuss! 1. Take a moment to share your responses to each question. 2. Which question(s) bring out the most information? 3. Which question(s) bring out the least information? 4.

The beeping of the machines echoed immensely in my head and I knew that noise would haunt me for the rest of my life. I walked in further to join my family that stood beside the bed. I hung my head in grief and through tears got one last look.
  • 23 I bent over and gently whispered, "Good-bye Grandma, I love you." It was then the nurse made the machines make a more painful sound; the sound of silence.
