  1. INTRODUCTIONS AND CONCLUSIONS

  2. HOW TO WRITE AN INTRODUCTION • Writing introductions and conclusions can be difficult, even for experienced writers. • Follow these steps to write a good introduction: • Think about the topic and what you want to say in your response. • If you are writing a multi-paragraph essay, plan the main points you want to make in the body of the essay. • Start out with a general statement about the topic.

  3. HOW TO WRITE AN INTRODUCTION • Begin to narrow down your topic in the direction of your main idea. • It always takes several, if not many, sentences to narrow down a topic. • When you get to the main topic you will be discussing, use a thesis statement or a topic sentence to summarize what you will be writing about.

  4. HOW TO WRITE AN INTRODUCTION • How would you write an introduction to this question? • There are both positive and negative aspects of having a savvy. What do you think it would be like to have a savvy? What would be difficult about it? How might it be useful? If you could choose a savvy, what would it be? Why?

Some positive aspects of having a savvy include… Some of the negative aspects of having a savvy include…

  5. HOW TO WRITE AN INTRODUCTION • An example introduction for an essay might be: • Most people probably wish for some special trait that will make them unique from the rest of the world. However, most of those people would like that special trait to be something subtle that doesn’t make them a target for ridicule. In the book, Savvy, the Beaumont family are all unique. Each member of the family has his or her own special skill, or savvy. Although having a savvy can be exciting and helpful, sometimes that same savvy can cause serious problems for both the individual and the family.

  6. HOW TO WRITE A CONCLUSION • Follow these steps to write a good conclusion: • Summarize the main points you discussed. • Restate your thesis statement, if you used one. • Widen the discussion to include more general statements about your topic. • Draw a conclusion about your topic.

  7. HOW TO WRITE A CONCLUSION • How would you write a conclusion for this same question? • There are both positive and negative aspects of having a savvy. What do you think it would be like to have a savvy? What would be difficult about it? How might it be useful? If you could choose a savvy, what would it be? Why? Use details from the story to explain your response. • An example introduction for a short response might be: • Ultimately, although having a savvy can be extremely beneficial, it can also be quite difficult to hide from the rest of the world.

  8. HOW TO WRITE A CONCLUSION • An example conclusion for an essay might be: • Having a savvy is something which is often useful, but sometimes problematic. Most people would like to have a special talent, but they do not want to stand out too much from the rest of the world. In the end, having a savvy or special ability is just like everything else in the world. There are pros and cons, which one must learn to handle and overcome.
