Self-Checklist and Rubric:
Writing the introduction:
Use three steps in the first (introduction) paragraph:
1. Write 1-3 opening sentences that attract the attention of the reader
2. Use the author’s full name+ title of the article (quotes)+ the information about the essay
3. Write a clear thesis with your reaction. Thesis should be specific. It should not be an announcement. Thesis should have your opinion+ the basis on which you feel this way. For this you must have three criteria or reasons to support your opinion.
Points for the first paragraph:
Body Paragraphs: Each body paragraph should include the following steps:
I First category + your opinion in the third person= topic sentence
A. Explanation: give details.
B. Supporting example from a chapter from the article in the book: write the quote/paraphrase from the author. Use quotations and use in-text citation (last name of the author page).
C. Analysis: write in your own words why this quote has good ideas. Why are
these ideas important? How do they support your topic sentence?
D. Sum up and add transition
Use transition between paragraphs – they should be ideas. You must introduce the idea (like a clue) at the end of one body. That will lead the reader to the topic sentence idea in the next paragraph. Therefore, transition is found at the end of a paragraph and at the beginning of the next paragraph.
ï‚· Restate the thesis
ï‚· Provide a final thought on the topic.
