Lesson 12 Introductions and Conclusions

  1. 1. Lesson 12 – Introduction and Conclusions <ul><li>Walt says: “In this lesson we will learn: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How to write an introduction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to write a conclusion.” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Wilf says: “By the end of this lesson you should be able to say: </li></ul><ul><li>‘ I can… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Write an introduction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Write a conclusion.’” </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. Introductions <ul><li>Have three parts: </li></ul><ul><li>Introduce the topic (e.g. Name of the text and author) </li></ul><ul><li>Introduce the task </li></ul><ul><li>Introduce the points that you will cover in your essay </li></ul><ul><li>An introduction lets you make clear to the reader what you are writing about and what they will find out as they read your piece of work. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Example Introduction <ul><li>The breeding of ornamental goldfish has occupied man for centuries. Are these selective breeding programmes causing more harm than good? By examining the pros and cons of breeding Bubble-eyed Goldfish, I hope to discover whether this selective breeding is cruel or beneficial. </li></ul>Complete Activity 24 in your booklet
  4. 4. Conclusions <ul><li>Finally, the conclusion has three parts to help show you have completed the task: </li></ul><ul><li>Revisit the task </li></ul><ul><li>Sum Up what you have shown </li></ul><ul><li>Give your Personal Response / Reaction (Answer your question!) </li></ul><ul><li>This is your last paragraph, but in ways it is the most important one. </li></ul><ul><li>A good last paragraph sums up the key ideas that you have covered and demonstrates to your reader how you’ve come up with your findings or reached your conclusion. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Example Conclusion <ul><li>Overall, it is clear that while Bubble-eyed goldfish are considered attractive and are popular amongst fish-keepers. This ancient Chinese species has been saved from extinction, but the high risk of their eye-sacs being damaged by other fish and ornaments makes keeping them cruel in my opinion. </li></ul>Complete Activity 25 in your booklet
  6. 6. Summary <ul><li>Remember… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An introduction makes it clear to the reader what you are going to be writing about. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A conclusion allows you to sum up on the main points you have covered and make your final judgement. </li></ul></ul>
