Introductory Paragraph

Include a hook and a thesis statement.

A hook to grab your reader’s interest.
Example:

Imagine for a second every super-hero in the universe locked in a cage and forced to fight to the death to determine the most dangerous one of all. Who would win? This fight would test all the hero’s wits, determination, strength, and skills, and though many would challenge, there could only be one winner. And that winner would be Batman.
A thesis statement
tells your reader exactly what is coming up in your essay.
A good thesis template
(with the bridge at the end):

Although
explain how someone might disagree with you
,
explain your point
.
Give the three main ideas that back your point up
.
Example:Although
Su
perman is the most powerful man in the world,
Ba
tman is the most dangerous hero.
He is intelligent, resourceful, and willing to bend the rules.
Body

One
SEXC paragraph
for each of the main points you have.

SEXC
stands for the order that you write down your ideas in a body paragraph for an essay.
First, you make a
S
TATEMENT (your answer to the question).
Then you
E
XPLAIN your statement in more detail (try to convince us your answer is sensible)
Then you give an E
X
AMPLE to prove your statement (show us that your answer came from something
you read or saw in the text)
Finally, you make a
C
OMMENT
to sum up your own opinion
on this topic
Example:

Batman is the most intelligent super-hero.
He….
(Explain and give examples of what he does and why those actions make him intelligent).

Well-developed intelligence makes Batman a threat to anyone.
Equally as important as Batman’s brain is the way he uses it, and Batman uses his keen intellect to be resourceful in all situations.
He…
(Explain and give examples examples of what he does and why those actions make him resourceful).

Assessing the situation and using the tools around him to gain advantage makes Batman a dangerous foe.

While intelligence and resourcefulness are key components to Batman, what makes him the most lethal is his willingness to bend the rules to win a fight.

He…

(Explain and give examples of what he does and explain how that is bending the rules).

Batman may not fight honorably like some other heroes, so his opponents cannot predict his actions easily, and this makes him a menacing character.

Conclusion

1. Revisit your hook.

a. Remind them about your opening hook and how that fits into your essay.


2.Restate your thesis statement

a. DO NOT USE THE SAME SENTENCE(S). Reword them.


3.Your final sentence should be your best sentence. Finish strong.

Example:

Whether an evil invader pits all the heroes against each other in a horrific Royal Rumble of super-powers or you and your buddies are just sitting around playing the latest super-hero fighting game on your Xbox, make no mistake – when pitted against each other, only one hero will win and that is Batman. Batman will use his enormous intellect, his keen resourcefulness, and his willingness to cheat when he needs to become the most dangerous hero in the world. So if you are a hopeful villain looking to start off on a promising life of crime, stay away from Gotham!

Wait... scrap all of that. Batman wouldn't be the champ.
A Great White Shark would take it all!!!
