Remember that introduction paragraphs take a different structure than body paragraphs. Introduction paragraphs require 3 parts:
- An attention-grabbing hook that will draw the reader in like a fish caught on a line;
- An explanation of how your hook relates to your thesis; and
- A thesis statement for the entire essay. Your thesis statement must list the three points you will talk about in your essay, e.g. superstitions, songs, and literature, or reading, writing, and English, as both a subject and a language.
Your homework for tonight, January 21, is to write 2 introduction paragraphs:
- One for your essay on the relevancy of reading, writing, and English, and
- one on what culture is to you.
DUE: Tomorrow, Wednesday, January, 22.
