Product Description
Do your students struggle with writing an introduction to an argumentative essay? I find that this first paragraph is often the most confusing and frustrating for both student and teacher! This colorful PowerPoint, geared toward beginning to intermediate writers, guides students step-by-step through the process.

This presentation gives students definitions and examples of the basic parts of an introduction using the somewhat silly topic of why more people should use the color yellow (they can’t steal that one!). Students will take notes on their own paper during the presentation—they will write down everything that is in RED lettering, and by the end they will have a full page of notes. A copy of these notes is provided for teacher reference.

This 30-slide presentation includes definitions and examples of the following:
1. Three types of hooks: the question (and the secrets to using a question properly as a hook), the surprising statement, and the anecdote.
2. How to include background information
3. How to write a simple thesis statement

Teacher notes are also provided on several of the slides.

This presentation is part of a BUNDLE which is a complete unit on writing the Argumentative Essay. The bundle also includes:

The Argumentative Essay - Writing the Body Paragraphs
The Argumentative Essay - Writing the Conclusion
The Argumentative Essay Packet
