Introduction Paragraph:

The introductory paragraph will provide necessary context for your main claim. It should draw the reader in with an engaging opening. This essay is not argumentative, so you don’t need to introduce authors at this stage or present opposing sides, but you may choose to introduce one or more authors if they help you provide necessary context for your main claim. Mostly, you’ll want your readers to understand why this big idea is important in strong academic writing. The introductory paragraph will logically lead to and include your main claim.
