A must for secondary ELA teachers!
-43 slides, sound and motion effects, color coding
-Walks students through the following central ideas, then goes into detail about each:
*Purposes of an introduction
*Parts of an introduction (thesis, supporting topics, hook, restatement of thesis)
*Hooks (what are they, examples of)
*Among others, it answers the following essential questions:
? Why should you practice writing introductions?
? What is the purpose of an introduction?
--How can an introduction help the reader?
--How can an introduction help the writer?
? How do you begin to write an introduction paragraph? What should it include?
-Includes lots of example intros, step by step improvements. These examples are designed to be interactive, with students answering questions on the slides as you go.
-There is a worksheet to go with this presentation here: "Introduction Paragraphs: Power Point Presentation Worksheet". But the presentation does NOT require the worksheet. It is an additional exercise to increase engagement.
-I usually spend several days on intro paragraphs, and, have a couple essays which are missing only the introduction paragraphs to use as practice (after the presentation, students write intros to the essays).
-Quotations reference page at end
-Best used it with either at-grade level 7-9th grade, or, below-level 10th-12th grade.
-Includes metaphors with loads of details and examples to reinforce value of intro ("Your introduction is a map for the rest of your paper.").
-Two of my writing colleagues (middle and high school) use this in their classrooms and say it has been very successful.
