Think as a lawyer: you have a unique chance to present your case and hook the audience.You can start by defining the major terms and providing some background on the topic.
With this essay, you should investigate a topic from multiple angles.
You’ll do that by collecting and evaluating evidence.
In the conclusion, you should restate your thesis statement and remind the reader how important this issue is.
You connect all threads into a logical ending, which leaves the reader with an impression that they have learned something new.
Then, at the end of the introduction, you will state your thesis in a clear, single sentence. It’s something that you can argue and support with evidence.
For example, a statement like “Traffic is contributing towards greater pollution” is not a solid thesis, since you can’t really argue about it.
Then, you’ll support those claims with arguments and facts.
Another alternative is presenting two claims supported with facts, and using the third body paragraph for showing and defying opposing opinions.
The conclusion should be logical and based on all arguments you presented throughout the body of the paper.
If you submit a paper that is poorly written and riddled with mistakes, it doesn’t matter how good your argument is. Professors read all day long and so common errors like passive voice, over-reliance on adverbs, and poorly constructed sentences drive them crazy.
