How to Write an Introduction Paragraph: Hook Strategies

Reflection: Although this lesson is formulaic, it provides students with the necessary structure to correctly write an introductory paragraph. Many students lack the structure to write research papers and providing them with a structure will strengthen their writing skills. Eventually, the goal is to allow more freedom in their writing.

How to Write an Introduction Paragraph in an Essay

Your introduction may actually be the last part of your essay that you finish even though it is first on the page. Don’t spend a lot of time on the introductory paragraph when you first start writing your essay. Your introductory paragraph is specifically crafted to introduce the rest of your essay. Because of that, it is hard to write an effective introductory paragraph until you finish the rest of the essay.

How to Write an Introductory Paragraph

How to write an introduction paragraph I'm always on the look out for new craft project ideas. I bet you are too! If you have a craft project tutorial of your own that you would like to share, your craft may be featured as a web page on the Crafts For All Seasons website.

This site is all about sharing unique and creative craft ideas, and we would all LOVE to see your craft projects you have done.

If accepted, your craft project will be on its own page on this website. You may link to it, and see what others have to say about your craft. A link to your project will appear below and also on its relevant category page (All occasion crafts, or a holiday/season page). Your craft will also be featured at the top of the home page for a limited time, and our Facebook page.


Some of my rules for acceptance have changed, so please take a moment to review these important points:

1. Your craft must be your own. That means you created it! Also make sure YOU have written the tutorial, no plagarism allowed.

2. Each craft tutorial should be at least 150 words long. Write a introduction paragraph about your craft, and include easy to follow step by step instructions. In some cases I may edit typos or grammar, add in extra information in your submission to help the search engines find your craft page better.

3. You must include a photo of the finished craft to be accepted. Sorry, no exceptions. It is hard to visualize a project without seeing the final result. I cannot accept your craft tutorial submission without a photo. Please make sure the photo is your own so that I know I have permission to post it.

Please resize the photo to 800x600 pixels. If you are having trouble, feel free to use the form to email me for help. I will reply to you and then you can attach your photos to the email and I'll do the resizing for you.

4. The craft tutorial you write must not appear on any other site. Exact duplicate content is frowned upon by Google and the search engines. If your craft appears on another site or blog, please do not submit it here. Only original content please.

5. I can no longer accept outgoing links in the craft tutorial submissions.

Warner · Can you write a Introduction Paragraph

Teach/Active Engagement (12-15 mins): The introductory paragraph can sometimes be very difficult to write. However, we can follow a format to make sure we write great introduction paragraphs to grab our reader and explain the purpose for our paper. An introduction paragraph has three main parts, an opening sentence, a lead in, and a thesis statement. Watch me as I write the three parts of my introduction paragraph about my topic, Abraham Lincoln.
