1. produce an introduction to the above topic.
Having already chosen a topic for Writing Assignment and having constructed an outline, it’s time to focus on the introduction. Previously we have discussed different introductory strategies for essays. Certainly, some strategies include a narrative (how does this issue affect you, your family, your friends, or your community), background on the issue or controversy, a relevant quotation, a concession, or some effects of the current situation, to name a few strategies. For this kind of paper, however, some begin by stating the issue, controversy, or problem, and then cover both the pros and cons to that issue, controversy, or problem briefly. Regardless of which strategy you pick, your goal is to hook the reader’s attention and also to provide background on the issue that leads to your thesis. The goal here should be to produce an introduction of between 8 and 12 sentences (1/2 to 3/4 of a page).
Pro tip: for the introduction writing Assignment, you’ll want to use at least three (3) sources. It might be helpful to do some research here and use a source in your introduction.
