introduce topic background info
Introduce Topic/Background Info
  • “He looked down in wonder at his split knuckles and at the blood that flowed down between his fingers” (Steinbeck 12). In John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, Kino often finds himself dangerously expressing his anger when he is faced with conflict. However, there is more to Kino’s character than just a short temper.
  • “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty…” (Poverbs 16:18). Kino from John Steinbeck’s The Pearl would benefit from this sound advice. Even though he is quick to get angry, Kino’s character goes far beyond his temper.
thesis statement
Thesis Statement
  • Here insert the thesis statement you have written for your character. Be sure that it FLOWS with what you have written for an attention-grabber and introduction of topic. If it doesn’t, then edit as necessary.
transition sentence
Transition Sentence
  • This sentence transitions to the first quality you will discuss in the first paragraph. This sentence should be SIMPLE and not go into too much detail. Save that for the first body paragraph.
example 1
Example 1:
  • “He looked down in wonder at his split knuckles and at the blood that flowed down between his fingers” (Steinbeck 12). In John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, Kino often finds himself dangerously expressing his anger when he is faced with conflict. However, there is more to Kino’s character than just a short temper. Kino, originally a brave, dedicated husband and father, quickly becomes greedy and ambitious throughout his terrible experiences with the Pearl of the World. Even though Kino will change as a result of the pearl, he starts out as a brave man protecting his family.
