This assignment will help you construct an engaging and effective introduction, which will appeal to readers and make them want to read your essay.
Step 1: Review
Before you start this assignment, please make sure you have reviewed our lecture Introductions: Making a Good First Impression.
To help you brainstorm different introduction strategies for your essay, let's practice some ways that you can begin your Essay 2 Prompt: Free vs. Hate Speech.
Using the different types of “leads” explained here, select one type of “lead” and write out a possible introduction paragraph the paper you are working on. Choose a way that you might begin and then add your background information and your thesis (it can (should) be the thesis you wrote for the previous exercise for both leads).
Follow these steps:
- Click on “Submit Assignment.”
- Choose “File Upload”
- click “Choose File”
- find your file
- click “Choose”
- check the box next to “I certify”
- click “Submit Assignment.”
By writing a possible introductory paragraph that you could use for Essay 2, you will receive a full credit for this assignment.
