We looked at some sample introductory paragraphs from last year to try to notice what work was done well (or not) concerning the depiction of the flash point (your specific entry way into the larger scope/big picture–can be a specific event, time period, example, narrative story, etc.) and its relevance to the chosen topic and its clear connection to globalization. We looked to see if there was an effective trajectory of those elements that led into the original claim. Some people have done two paragraph introductions in the past, but it is completely up to you.
Here’s a reading I gave you regarding Introductions and Conclusions from the text I introduced to you yesterday, Writing Analytically (pieces are cut out of it so the page numbers are not sequential, but I tried to eliminate the parts that were irrelevant to our task at hand).
HOMEWORK: Write the draft of your introduction paragraph
