Introduction & Conclusion
Due Week 5 and worth 50 points
Remember in this course, you will develop one essay. The subject of your essay for this course is “Changing Our Lives.” In your essay, you will present and then explain THREE reasons why you decided to go to college at this time in your life.
In the first two (2) assignments you chose your topic, created a thesis statement, and prepared an outline. Now you will create the introduction and the conclusion paragraphs for your essay.
You will create and submit your assignment by using ecree. Your work will be saved automatically. You’ll see some feedback on the right-hand side of the screen – try to read it and watch the help videos as you go, but ignore feedback about your body paragraphs for now. When you’re ready, you can turn in your assignment by clicking “Submit” at the bottom of the page.
Write an introduction and conclusion in which you:
Develop an introduction paragraph that attracts the reader’s attention and introduces the topic of returning to school.
As the final sentence in the introduction, include the revised version of the thesis statement you wrote in Assignment 2, making sure to use instructor feedback in revision.
Develop a conclusion paragraph to the essay, making sure the conclusion signals an end to the essay and provides a closing thought. Be sure to restate your thesis within this closing paragraph.
Meet the assignment word count of five to seven (5-7) sentences for each paragraph.
Minimize mechanical, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and stylistic errors.
