Composition strategies: introductory and concluding paragraphs

Posted: June 18, 2011 in writing

Decide whether you agree/disagree completely with the statement, partly agree/disagree with it, or have no definite opinion.
Choose one of these approaches:

  • State your position in the introduction and then justify it with arguments. This may be more suitable if you feel strongly about the statement.
  • Present the arguments first and then say what you think in the conclusion. This may be better if you have no strong opinion but can put forward arguments on both sides.
