How to Write an Introductory Paragraph to an Essay
An introductory paragraph for an academic essay contains a narrowly-focused thesis statement, and
highlights evidence you will use to argue your thesis. An introduction to an essay is the first and
perhaps only opportunity for a writer to gain a reader’s attention, thus, you must take care to craft
introductory paragraphs that are dynamic, include a thesis, introduce evidence, as well as comply
with academic writing standards.
The introduction to your essay needs to contain the following elements:
a sentence or two introducing your topic
a clearly written thesis statement
a brief summary of evidence that you are going to use to support your argument
- Bats are a generalizing name for representatives of the order of bats, with the exception of bats. For a long time, bats were considered as a suborder, until it was shown by karyological and molecular genetic data that this group is paraphyletic: representatives of the superfamily Rhinolophoidea are more related to bats than to other bats. Nevertheless, in Russian-language scientific and popular science literature, the name continues to be used in the same meaning. In fact, representatives of 6 families belonging to Rhinolophoidea and 14 families now united in the suborder Yangochiroptera fall under this name; representatives of fossil families of the order are also called bats, some of which are apparently older than the division of living groups, including bats.
- Eagles are a genus of large birds of the hawk family. They nest on the ground, rocks or trees. They feed on small and medium-sized vertebrates (they look out, hovering in the air, or lie in wait, sitting on an elevated place), sometimes carrion. The number is decreasing.
- Dolphins are aquatic mammals of the cetacean infraorder, belonging either to the dolphin family — marine, or to the non—taxonomic group of river dolphins — freshwater. They love water and small fish.
- Bees are a clade of flying insects from the superfamily Apoidea of the order Hymenoptera, related to wasps and ants. The science of bees is called apiology (apidology).
