Writing Introductions
7th Grade Writing Workshop
Introductions
When someone reads your essay or looks at your poster/brochure,

the very first thing they should read is the INTRODUCTION.
This is your one chance to make a good impression on your reader and grab their attention. You don't want them to be bored!
Step 1:
Hook Your Reader!
Step 2:
Step Three:
Write a THESIS STATEMENT.
States the main idea or topic of your essay.
Suggests how the paper will be organized.
The thesis statement is usually the last sentence of your introduction.
a brief personal story
a quotation
an interesting fact
a question
... or in other words,
grab their attention so they WANT to read your writing.
Types of Hooks:
Preview the topic.
Your reader may have little to no knowledge about your chosen career.
This should be 3-5 sentences providing a brief description about the career.
Did you know our society would not function without garbage men?
Being a garbage collector is a very important job. Every town has and needs garbage collectors. Without garbage men, our town would be very dirty and littered with trash.
Garbage collecting is an important job that requires a lot of hard work and training.

The introduction is a whole paragraph (5-7 sentences), but it is not the same as a body paragraph! There are three different parts to the introduction paragraph.
Write your own hook for your career project. Remember you should share a personal story relating to your career, provide a quote, share an interesting fact, or ask a question.
Add a 3-5 sentence description to your hook. Make sure your description does not give away facts or information that you will be writing about in your body paragraphs.
Add a thesis statement to your introduction that states the main topic of your essay.
