Lesson overview:Writing an effective introduction

  • In this lesson, we will return to our plan and look at how to develop an effective introduction to our essay. We will start by reviewing the model answer and considering how the introduction works. We will then look at the technique of a 'drop paragraph' and consider how different choices are made depending on the purpose and audience of our task and the relationship we need to establish with our reader. After examining the features of a 'drop paragraph' you will return to your own plan and write the first section of your essay.
