CHARACTERISTICS OF AN INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH
1.Introduce the topic.
An introductory paragraph is the first thing that a reader sees.
2. Indicate generally how the topic is going to be developed.
A good introductory paragraph should indicate whether the essay is going to discuss causes, effects, reasons or examples.
3. Contain thesis statement.
It is a good idea to state the thesis statement clearly and at or near the end of the introduction.
It should be interesting enough to make the reader want to continue reading.
Students, you might be wondering why the shape of the introductory paragraph is like upside down triangle. It does not mean that you have to write your paragraph according to the shape but the flow of your ideas in the paragraph should be from broad to narrow.
Along the road from cradle to grave many of us get married. This in itself can cause more emotional disturbance than all the other events of our lives combined. Many factors make the difference between marital bliss and having "an old ball-and-chain" but the most important factor is probably whom we choose to marry. I always look for someone who is intelligent, compassionate as well as ready to give her commitment towards marriage life as my future perfect wife.
