LECTURE March 3, 2011
Procedural openings
Something in the introduction that reveals how the essay will proceed
Especially useful in longer papers roadmap of the essay
Risks:
oNot the same as a thesis
oRisk of using a procedural opening, and NOT HAVING A CLAIM, which
is not wanted
Thesis tells reader WHAT will be argued; procedure tells reader HOW
argument will be made
oPaper not a detective story
oAcademic writing everything is upfront, know where it is going, do not
defer
oLet reader know near beginning the topic of paper and the approach
oCan use statements In this paper, I will argue This paper attempts to
show etc.
Thesis should follow
oUse these markers properly to support own authority
Teological narrative narratives that unfold in linear order and end in closure
Too much qualification may hint at a weak thesis
Should only need to qualify once or twice
Introductions too much revealed
Too long take stuff out
oDo NOT want an essay in miniature
Digression
oToo much background information
oToo much context may turn off reader
oAssume reader is knowledgeable set up in beginning what you assume
they know and when they dont
Incoherence
oJumping to ideas without making clear what links these ideas together
oUSE REVERSE OUTLINE to help revise an incoherent introduction
Recommended ways to open essay
Challenge commonly held view
oBegin by reacting captures reader interest
oOften offers a structure
oEasy to bring context into essay
Definition
oMust be relevant

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
