How to Write a Winning Introduction

Keep your reader engaged. This is the primary objective of the introduction. Your essay will captivate attention and prime a connection point to the audience. These are some strategies to make your project memorable and polished every time.

1. Hook

Appealing to ethos, pathos and logos engage the reader.

In music, the hook is the ‘catchy’ part of the song that is often recognized outside of the song. The same concepts apply to writing as well in terms of making an impression in the readers mind about the topic early on in the composition.

Some strategies:

  •  Shocking or otherwise convincing statistics
  •  Large Scale issues that connect your topic to world events.
  •  Asking a series of questions that will be addressed through the essay



2. Background

Present the relevant facts and events.

The introduction will usually be followed by a thorough background and presentation of theory. Therefore you want to only mention the major concepts that will be discussed later.

Some strategies:

  •  Create a sentence or two with one keyword from each paragraph.
  •  Mention important events  in chronological order.
  •  Present the existing standards held by other scholars.


3. Thesis

Connect your buzz words. 

The thesis sentence will clearly summarize your topic and the particular angle that you are making an argument from.

Clean and simple strategies:

  •  Represent what action your paper will take  with words such as ‘defend’, ‘prove’ , or ‘analyze’ .
  •  Connect your specific subtopics to the existing academic background.
  •  Illustrate the types of content that will be used to connect your buzz words.
