Presentation Transcript

  1. 3 Parts of an Introduction • Invitation – where you pull the reader in and get them interested in the paper. • Introduction – where you specifically mention what the narrowed topic is. • Information – where you state what the rest of the paper will discuss (your thesis statement should go somewhere in this section)

  2. Introductory Paragraph Few things are more exciting than chasing a tornado down its path of destruction. Storm chasing is an exciting, but dangerous career that spreads throughout the Midwest. It is not an easy career to get into however; there are long hours, little pay at the beginning, and a lot of schooling to go through. Once all that is taken care of, the rewards are unimaginable.

  3. Introductory Paragraph Few things are more exciting than chasing a tornado down its path of destruction. Storm chasing is an exciting, but dangerous career that spreads throughout the Midwest. It is not an easy career to get into however; there are long hours, little pay at the beginning, and a lot of schooling to go through. Once all that is taken care of, the rewards are unimaginable.

  4. Types of Grabbers • Rhetorical Question – Why are steroids bad for baseball? • Dialogue – “I have never used steroids…period.” • Mystery Statements – There are many things that make a good baseball player, but not all of them are legal. • Shocking Statement – It has been theorized that at one time more than 80% of baseball players were on steroids. • Onomatopoeia – Crack! The sound of a home run used to be a call for celebration, now it only raises questions. • Personal Opinion – Steroid are the worst thing to happen to baseball in the last 20 years. • Strong Persuasive Statement – Baseball players that use steroids should be kicked out of baseball.

  5. Paragraph Structures Occasion/Position Occasion – why are you writing about this Position – what you will prove or explain Key words – After, Although, As, Before, Even though, If, Since, Unless, Until, When, Whenever, While “Since steroids were introduced to baseball in the 1980’s, the game has undergone a noticeable change.”

  6. Paragraph Structures Where or When Plus What’s Happening? Where or When – give a certain period of time What’s Happening – the affect you will explain Types – What could happen? should happen? will happen? might happen? could have happened? When steroids were introduced to baseball, the game changed forever.

  7. Paragraph Structures And, But, Or, and So Use to split up two Independent Clauses 1st Clause – reason for writing 2nd Clause – your stance “Baseball needed to gain fans back after the strike of 1994, but steroids did much more than raise attendance numbers.”

  8. Paragraph Structures Power Statement Throw out something filled with emotion to get the reader on your side Really accentuate your position “To say that steroids have negatively affected baseball would be as much of an understatement as calling the Constitution just a piece of paper.”
