Introductions don’t have
to be just one paragraph.
You can use the first paragraph to “hook” your readers and then introduce the relevance of the hook (i.e., your thesis) in the second or even third paragraph(s).
Just don’t take too long to get there.
Don’t spend too much time on
“catchy” introductory methods;
get to your thesis as quickly as possible.
