Assignment

Assignment

  • Create an outline using the format discussed. This must be typed!

  • Provide your topic sentence.

  • This outline is organic: it may change as you begin to write the paper.

  • This is an initial exercise to organize your thoughts.


Funnel introduction

Funnel Introduction

  • Purpose

    • Attract audience to writing

    • Clarify main idea of your essay

    • Present author and work discussed

    • Clarify presentation of ideas

  • The introduction consists of four “funneled” parts: generalization, introduction to author and work, background information, and thesis statement.


Generalization

Generalization

  • Address subject of prompt and main idea (main idea is generated from prompt)

  • Mention concepts you intend to explore in your essay in general – not vague – terms (i.e. Are you exploring price and its devastating effects? Are you addressing how one event can change a person’s perspective?


Continued

Continued

  • Do not reference the entirety of history (i.e. Throughout history . . .)

  • Do not reference literature, authors, or literary devices in general terms (i.e. Authors use symbolism to . . . In literature the main character . . . )

  • Usually 2-4 sentences


Introduction to a and w

Introduction to A and W

  • Directly connect to generalization

  • Present characters, events, or necessary setting

  • Don’t simply repeat information from generalization – add to it.

  • Remember the funnel – general to specific.

  • 1 sentence


Background information

Background Information

  • Needed information from work (s) to smoothly move into thesis

  • This is not a space for unnecessary character traits or plot summary

  • This is not the space for specific examples from the work (s).

  • Usually 1-2 sentences


Thesis statement

Thesis Statement

  • Must contain the main idea of your essay

    • This should be a specified main idea from what you discussed in your introduction.

    • If discussing theme, the theme should remain universal and not work specific.

  • Must establish your “plan of attack” – what are the topics you will prove your main idea with?


Inverse funnel conclusion

Inverse Funnel Conclusion

  • Purpose

    • Remind audience of what you set out to prove

    • Give insight on the topic referencing points made throughout essay.

    • Leave audience with something to think about without literally asking a question.

    • The conclusion consists of three parts: loose rewording of thesis without topics, review and insight, final comment on topic.
