Introductions past unreal conditionals

  1. 1. WRITING INTRODUCTIONS AND HOOKS – PAST UNREAL CONDITIONALS WRITING INTRODUCTIONS AND HOOKS • The introductory paragraph is an important part in an essay.
  2. 2. • The reader will be attracted to read your essay if your introductory paragraph is good. • In order to provoke the reader’s interest, you need to include a hook in your introductory paragraph.
  3. 3. A hook is a sentence or two meant to grab the reader’s attention. The hook could be: • a shocking or surprising sentence; • an anecdote (story); • an interesting point; • a quote.
  4. 4. Examples: Stop! Don’t take that pill! You can pray that headache away. Or at least that’s what people who believe in spiritual healing would have you believe. Dr. Larry saw for himself the power of spiritual healing when his patient whose lungs were filled with cancer and who refused all medical intervention returned to his care within one year with completely clean lungs. What had the patient done? Pray.

  6. 6. The result clause (result) Subject + would (not) have + past participle could (not) have might (not) have Amy would have taken medicine. Source: http://www.psmag.com/blogs/the-101/the-spectrum-of-color-response-take-your-medicine-51195/
  7. 7. If her parents had brought her to a doctor, Amy would have taken medicine. Amy would have taken medicine if her parents had brought her to a doctor. Source: http://webcatolicodejavier.org/quieroabortar.html
  8. 8. The past unreal conditional talks about past unreal, untrue, or imagined conditions and their results. Both parts of the sentence describe events that are the opposite of what happened. What really happened: Amy’s parents didn’t brought her to a doctor. Amy didn’t take medicine.
  9. 9. THANK YOU!
