About this Worksheet:
Most introductions include three parts: the lead, which catches the attention of the reader, the bridge which connects the lead to the topic, and the thesis statement which is a sentence that states the author’s opinion or the main idea of the text. The thesis may also forecast the important points of the text. Below are two essay topics and the main points that should be covered in the essay. Write an introduction for each topic. Be sure to state a position in your thesis statement. This activity is great for high school students, to help them develop essay writing skills.
