PLease follow * introduction is connected to everything we are doing right now. So, you will use your thesis that you wrote last week in the introduction that you put together. In your introduction, you will introduce the authors that you used in your thesis statement. * The next stage in the writing process is your introduction. We have just heard from the Writing Center about the importance of an introduction, as well as some strategies to use. For this assignment, I would like you to follow this simple outline when you put your introduction together: Introduction Steps 1. Hook: Although this can sometimes be the hardest thing to write, a hook helps grab the reader′s attention. Some strategies to write a hook are to open with a quote, a fact, asking the reader to imagine a scenario. 2. General Topic/Background Info: What have we been talking about in a general manner? We have been focusing on African American experiences (during segregation and after), and how the writers in our unit use personal experience as a way to persuade their readers, specifically regarding the need for racial equality in the U.S. 3. Introduce the authors and titles of their essays: Connect the general topic to our specific authors. Introduce who the author (full name) is and the title of the essay. Try to give the reader one sentence of a summary regarding what the essay is about. 4. Thesis: Describe whether you think these writers’ dependence on their personal experiences strengthens or weakens their cases for racial equality. Remember, you already have a working thesis to use for this introduction. If you aren′t happy with what you already turned into me, this is the perfect time to revise and strengthen your thesis! A Quick Outline Example: Hook: Imagine walking down the street and having everyone try to avoid you due to the color of your skin. (Expand this a bit more before moving on) General information: Black men (and Black people in general) are often criminalized when in public spaces. (Expand this idea a bit more and then try to connect to writers using personal experience:) Many writers use personal experience as a form of evidence for their arguments. Many African American writers have written about the injustices they have personally faced in order to help educate people about the racial inequalities that still exist in America. Introduce authors: Two writers who utilize their personal experiences in their writing are Brent Staples and Ahmir Questlove Thompson. Staples writes about his own experiences of being racially profiled in his essay ″Black Men in Public Space,″ and Thompson echoes Staples experiences over 30 years later in his article, ″Trayvon Martin and I Ain′t Shit.″ (Again you can expand and add more detail here to help the readers understand what the readings are about – this is just a quick example for you to think about) Thesis: Both authors dependence on their personal experience strengthens their arguments for the need for racially equality due to…(come up with particular reasons that will drive the argument) When you put this introduction together, I do not want you to use a list like I have above with numbers. I want it to move smoothly between the points. Think of the outline above as an organizational strategy and points I want you to hit as you build the introduction. Requirements You need to engage with MLA formatting and have an MLA header(this means double spaced, Times New Roman, one inch margins, a header on the left hand side, with a title, etc). Please remember to look over the MLA information I provided if you are unclear about this. You need 3/4 of a page of writing You need to answer the essay prompt and include two authors in your introduction You need to follow the above outline in regards to an organization
