Thesis

Introduction Arrow General
Conclusion Arrow Specific

What to avoid when writing an Introduction and Conclusion

Don't write an essay like used to in highschool
Develop thesis and repeat in conclusion

Alter Thesis Arrow reword thesis so it differs from intro & conclusion

The body of essay is spend to develop material and info, it doesn't make sense to repeat thesis at the end again

Students tend to get married to one single version of their Thesis Exclamation LOOOOOL

Thesis = Topic ( Walmart) & controlling idea ( good place for bargains)

Organize grammar, content, ideas
make sure to be clear and easy to understand

know your audience

Anecdote = personal story DOES NOT belong in body of essay Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Anecdotes go into Introduction

Next week focus is on exam

Academic Honesty / Integrity = borderline of theft and honesty

padding = pretends something you have never done nor achieved academics/career/ inventing a job or degree you DO NOT have Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Take responsibility for your work

DO NOT ruin the chance of success for someone else through laziness and ignorance.
