Now read your partner’s introduction while he or she reads yours. Then make notes and give positive feedback about the specific ways your partner’s writing is meeting the goals of an excellent introduction.
- A smooth introduction to the topic—not a cheesy hook or a bland, general statement.
- An appropriate level of formality.
- A thesis that is specific, challenging, and based on evidence the paper will provide and analyze.
Review the Unit Accomplishments in Lesson 3 if that helps you keep the purpose of the essay clear in your mind.
Share your notes with your partner.
