Engl 134 Fall 2010 Introductions and Conclusions An introduction and conclusion frame your essays. Just as your introduction acts as a bridge that transports your readers into the “place” of your ideas, your conclusion can provide a bridge to help your readers make the transition back to their daily lives. Such an introduction and conclusion will help readers see why all your analysis and information should matter. Introductions Your introduction is an important trail map for your essay, and should capture your readers' interest, making them want to read the rest of your paper. When writing your introduction, keep in mind the question, “What’s in this for a reader?” Pay special attention to your first sentence. If any sentence in your paper is going to be completely free of errors and vagueness, it should be your first one. Make sure that the first sentence actually says something useful and that it does so in an interesting and error-free way. When writing your introduction, start by thinking about the subject and purpose of your paper. Consider these options: use an intriguing example introduce a provocative quotation create a puzzling scenario that will showcase a problem or situation apply a vivid and perhaps unexpected anecdote
