Introduction…. How do I write it? HOOK… Your hook should be the first sentence of your whole essay and its purpose is to get the reader to WANT to read your essay…it should be: A question An interesting statement A startling fact Your “informative” sentences Here is where you mention what your reasons are These should be about 3 sentences long They should be informative, but brief and to the point…do not use any details NEXT is THESIS statement: What does it do?? It is a road map for the paper; in other words, it tells the reader what to expect from the rest of the paper. State your topic and your opinion when writing your thesis statement. How do I write it? Your thesis statement is not your topic (ie: youth football), it is what you want to say about it (ie: youth football causes serious, harmful injuries) All of your details and reasons should support this sentence Does your thesis have words like ‘good’ or ‘bad?’ If it does, be more creative! Come up with interesting ways to portray your thesis and deliver your topic Your thesis should have the subject (Animal Farm) along with what you are going to describe (how the pigs broke the rules) Examples… •In Animal Farm, Napoleon eventually breaks all of the rules, and more commonly a few. •Even though the animals in Animal Farm rebelled to establish equality, Napoleon eventually took over and broke the rules they had created to maintain equality for all. EXAMPLE… In the novel Animal Farm, many rules the animals create are broken by their leader, Comrade Napoleon. Not only does he engage in trade with humans, but he also takes over the farmhouse and begins sleeping in Jones’s bed. To add to this, he commits the worse crime of all, he eventually kills many of the animals that inhabit the farm. Even though the animals established rules to maintain equality on Animal Farm, Napoleon breaks many, if not all of them.
