Introductions and Conclusions

Introductions are the first chance you will have to grab your reader's attention. Use interesting sentence structure and sensory image. This is also a PREVIEW of what you will discuss in the body of your narrative.

Conclusions is your chance to tie everything together. You can state what is most important, summarize, or share your final feelings. DO NOT introduce new information.


Complete activities A-C, we will discuss your answers in class.
