Provided here is a model or sample introduction of an informative essay. Writing Whiz uses a sample introduction to outline, demonstrate, and explain how students should create the introduction to an informative essay; start with a catchy first line. This leads into an anecdote or examples, statements on the importance of the topic, and a final thesis statement or specific topic sentence. The introduction sets up the entire rest of the essay. Of note are the strong verbs, transitions (no repeating first words), and a solid word count included. I hope this helps!
