Raft Your Introduction Plus a Sample Body Paragraph

This DB is worth 40 points total: 20 points for each of the two paragraphs (intro + body), and you need to write a thorough and thoughtful paragraph for each of these in order to get the full 40 points.

You will almost certainly need to revise your intro and perhaps your body paragraph later, of course. This DB just gets you writing your paper and gives you the opportunity to receive some feedback as you work. To get full credit for this DB, your intro and your body paragraph each need to have at least three well-developed sentences; aim for five sentences to be more thorough.

As you draft your introduction, there are a couple of main points Id like you to focus on. One of these points is to state your (tentative) thesis is a clear way so that your reader will know what your whole paper will be about. The other is to provide some context for your reader; this context should help do two things: it should help your reader see how you moved from the general theme of publishing into your specific paper topic, and it should provide a smooth lead-in to your thesis itself. There are also some great ideas on writing introductions in Chapter 4 of The Curious Researcher.

I like these two handouts on writing introductions: owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/724/1/. Here also is a good resource on body paragraphs: .

For the purposes of the Research Papers in this class, please assume that your audience is made up of your classmates and your instructor. We all have some basic knowledge of the course theme, and were all interested to know how each individual writer is going to move from that broad theme into a very specific thesis.

For the sample body paragraph, you can include a paragraph that belongs anywhere in the body of your paper; it could be something that would fit shortly after the introduction, or it could be a paragraph you imagine using somewhere later in the paper.

A great idea for this body paragraph is to write up a paragraph using the ideas Ballenger talks about in Chapter 3 about working with sources. Is there a quote or statistic youve found that you really like? Start from an interesting piece of evidence, and build a body paragraph from there: give the reader your own ideas about the evidence, your own response to it, etc.
