2. Create a working outline. Consult You, Writing! on pp. 37-46
3. Write two different introductory paragraphs. Decide also which introduction you like the best. Why? Remember the introduction should grab the reader’s attention. it should be narrative, the thesis may be implied or explicit. Traditionally, a thesis should be the last sentence of your first paragraph, but for now, you are still in the invention and drafting stage. Therefore, do not worry so much about getting it right. Again, Consult You, Writing! on pp. 47-54 and lectures about Components of Formal Academic Writing, Narrative Writing, Writing Process, and Understanding Rhetorical Knowledge.
