Research paper structure introduction

  1. 1. Research Paper Structure-Introduction-<br />Mr. Roberts<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />Introduce the subject and come to the point<br />Body<br />The real power of your writing<br />Support your thesis<br />Examples<br />Detailed Information<br />Conclusion<br />Begin by restating your thesis<br />Not word for word!<br />Gradually become more broad and general<br />Basic Structure<br />
  3. 3. The American buggy race is a thing of the past, but its spirit is not. It lives on today at a thousand dragstrips, where teenage boys now race their hotrods just as their grandfathers once raced their horse-drawn rigs. The boy behind the wheel of that roaring modern vehicle, however, has a great deal more than his grandfather’s daring spirit. He has a machine built mainly with his own hands and a head full of technical knowledge that grandpa never even dreamed about. Every race he drives is not only a contest but a test – a test of his knowledge as well as his skill as a driver. Like his grandfather, he will race every challenger, but today’s drag-racing teenager is primarily an automotive engineer, as eager to test his theories as to win races.<br />Sample Introduction<br />
  4. 4. Open with a broad, general statement related to the thesis.<br />Gradually narrow to a point (thesis) by becoming more specific and adding more detail.<br />Remember the Psychology of Argument!<br />Tip: Make an observation about the topic.<br />Introduction Notes<br />
  5. 5. Remember – the demand is upon you is for clarity, logic, and reasonableness!<br />Do not attempt to use “clever” openings, or “Gag-lines”<br />Your job is to convince the reader of the logic of your thesis, and therefore your wisdom and reasonableness as a human being.<br />No Bombs, Please!<br />
  6. 6. Drag racing! How parents hate it! How kids love it! Zoom! Powie! We’re Off!<br />Whee! Just listen to that roar! The draggers are really hot tonight!<br />Take four wheels, a little metal and glass and some gasoline. Mix well and add one teenager. What have you got? A drag racer!<br />Example “bombshell” openings<br />
  7. 7. Writing as painfully bas as this is born of a perfectly sound impulse- a desire to be interesting.<br />The effect or result is the exact opposite!<br />Readers can see right through these bombs and tell that the writer the absence of real thought or imagination.<br />No Bombs, Please!<br />
  8. 8. You WILL discover that it is usually necessary to rewrite your introduction after you have completed the body.<br />New ideas found in research<br />Change of opinion<br />Most writers find that they cannot get into the meat of their writing until they have established some sort of introduction – even if they have to change it later!<br />Further Notes<br />
  9. 9. If you feel that the structure or pattern for writing an introduction limits your creativity, remember that this is the source of its strength.<br />It provides you with a framework that builds confidence in beginning writers.<br />Too Rigid?<br />
