Introductions and thesis
Introductions and Thesis:

  • Introductions: Introduce your information.

    • Hook our attention:

      • Scenarios

      • Questions

      • Definitions

      • Interesting facts

    • Background:

      • What are the basics that we need to know in order to understand everything else you will be talking about?

    • THESIS: The sentence that tells what you will be talking about:

      • TOPIC + OPINION + EXPLANATION:

        • A registered nurse (RN) is a fascinating profession because you provide a service that was not always available to help both the patients and the doctors.


Body paragraphs
Body Paragraphs:

  • Topic Sentence

  • Facts

  • Explain / Analyze the facts

    • Think of it like this:

      • SAY: what does the research (fact) say?

      • MEAN: what does that research (fact) mean?

      • MATTER: Why does that matter to your thesis / topic sentence?

  • Conclusion

  • Indent every paragraph!

  • New idea / topic = New PARAGRAPH


Conclusions
Conclusions

  • Wrap it all up.

  • This is the final thing anyone reads!

  • What was your point again?

  • Add any commentary you feel had no other place.

  • Talk to your audience.

  • Be sure you remind us of what you just wrote about.


History
History

  • Use a timeline-like approach

  • Information should flow

  • Start at the beginning and work toward the present


Small but important reminders
Small but important reminders:

  • Add Page Numbers

  • Parenthetical References:

    • You are the best class ever (Montes 42).

    • Include the actual citation in your works cited

  • SH = Subheading – you need one between each section

  • Order your sections: history, professionals impact

  • Need to paraphrase and quote! So obvious!
