Description

Chapter 4 explains and exemplifies the four types of formal introductions from classical rhetoric that students are most likely to find useful for their essays. Here again the instruction includes fully explained samples and models of good practice that students can imitate. Less conventionally, it encourages students to consider adding their formal introductions as one of the final steps in the process, once they know their thesis and have structured their essays.
