  16. 16. Bones of an Introduction The ‘bones’ of an introduction! Wait! What does that paragraph look like?
  17. 17. Bones of an Introduction I’m glad you asked! Here’s an example! YAY!
  18. 18. A Bony Intro: An Example We spend approximately 70% of our time in school, but some people think we need more time in school. However, lengthening more hours for school days has some disadvantages students and teachers. First, students will lack private time if the school day is made longer. Second, students can study by themselves at home, so they don’t need a longer school day. Last, teachers will have to work longer—something that might make their work worse. Despite these reasons, some still want to make the school day longer; I’ll explain why that’s a bad idea.

  20. 20. Bones of an Introduction There you have it! The ‘bones’ of an introduction! Wait! What else can go in an introduction?
  21. 21. An Intro’s Muscle I’m glad you asked! A bony skeleton is important to hold an essay together, but an essay needs more than just bones: it needs muscle too!
  22. 22. An Intro’s Muscle Here are some ideas to fill out your introduction! A quick, relevant:
  23. 23. An Intro’s Muscle Let’s add some muscle to our bony introduction. Muscle shown in red.
  24. 24. An Intro’s Muscle <ul><li>We spend approximately 70% of our time in school, but some people think we need more time in school. Mission Hills High School has already added 1.5 hours to its school day. However, lengthening more hours for school days has some disadvantages students and teachers. First, students will lack private time if the school day is made longer. Second, students can study by themselves at home, so they don’t need a longer school day. Last, teachers will have to work longer—something that might make their work worse. At my high school, Valley Center High School, teachers and students protested longer school days and won. Protests will continue as long as this idea is alive. Despite all the reasons against it, some still want to make the school day longer; I’ll explain why that’s a bad idea. </li></ul>
  25. 25. An Intro’s Muscle Now, didn’t that intro seem more beefy? But what comes after the introduction? Tell me more! MORE!
  26. 26. Writing Essays Soon enough, young one. Soon enough.
