Writing the introduction and conclusion of essay

By August 17, 2021 - 7:42am

Writing the introduction and conclusion of essay
There are now only two paragraphs missing from your expository essay: the introduction and the conclusion. These paragraphs give the reader an entry point and exit point to your essay.
The introduction should be designed to catch the reader's attention and give him an idea of ​​the purpose of the essay.
1. Start with a catch.
The choice of the hook is yours, but here are some ideas:
• Surprising information
It may simply be a fact that perfectly illustrates the point that you want to develop. If you use an element of surprising information, follow it with a sentence or two of development.
• Anecdote
An anecdote is a story that illustrates one point. Be sure that your anecdote is short, to the point, and adapted to your subject. This can be a good opening for your essay, but
use it carefully.
• Dialogue
An appropriate dialogue does not have to identify the interlocutors, but the reader must understand the idea that you are trying to pass on. Only use two or three exchanges between interlocutors to support your thesis. Follow your dialogue with one or two developments.
• Summary information
A few sentences explaining your subject in general terms may lead the reader to your thesis smoothly. Each sentence must become progressively more specific, until
reach your thesis.
2. If the teaser was only a sentence or two, add one or two additional sentences that will bring the reader from your opening up to the statement of your thesis.
3. Finish the paragraph with the statement of your thesis.
The conclusion announces the end to the reader, summarizing your points of view or providing a final point of view about you.Learn more about "how to write a definitive essay" from our blog! A conclusion requires only three or four strong sentences that do not need to follow an established formula. Review only the main points (being careful not to repeat them exactly) or describe briefly your feelings on the subject. Even an anecdote can finish your essay in a useful way.
