This one page printable serves as a quick activity for students, supplying steps to help students throughout the introduction brainstorming and drafting process.
I recommend pairing this activity with the Introduction Strategy Handout for Building Background Information, also listed on this site.
I use the two resources in conjunction with each other for my college-level students during a 50 minute period; however, the activity may be used on its own for a 10 to 12 minute activity, provided the students have some awareness of different ways to provide context to an introduction (i.e. provide background info., etc.).
The download is editable.
