The introduction paragraph is recommended to include the following contents:
1、Introduce the writer’s intention of this argument;
2、Brief the main idea of the passage
(Better to mention author and title of the passage in the essay);
3、List the most relevant evidence/reasoning/stylistic or persuasive
elements the writer uses to support his or her argument.
Each paragraph contains a topic sentence, which introduces the whole paragraph in brief, and an elaboration on a specific device in detail.
1、Cite the device or tool you are going to elaborate in the paragraph;
2、Explain what it is in the essay and what meaning or idea it carries;
3、Analyze the effect on essay interms of appealing to reason;
4、Analyze the effect on readers in terms of appealing to emotion;
Unlike many other types of writing, the resigned SAT essay does not demand a deeper insight to the future or whatsoever. The students need only to repeat in a paraphrasing manner the following:
1、The main idea of the passage;
2、The tools the writer uses to make his or her argument persuasive;
3、If time allows, the intention of the writer and the effects of the tools employed.
