Writing Introduction Paragraphs

Key Take Aways

  • Make your introduction engaging for the reader. 

  • Provide background and context in order to lead reader to your thesis statement.

  • Do not simply list the main points you plan to discuss in your body paragraphs.

  • Try beginning with a brief anecdote.

  • Think of your introduction as an invitation to a party. How can you make your reader want to read further?
