Join 📚 Michael's Highlights

A batch of the best highlights from what 🤓 Michael's read, .

The basic structural model that works pretty well in many cases looks like this: General Introduction: get your reader’s interest right away; briefly provide only necessary background (Don’t summarize!). Make your topic clear; focus on a specific statement of your thesis. - Organize supporting ideas into coherent paragraphs with clear topic sentences (this applies both to written works and to the scripts of audio and video productions). - Create meaningful and smooth transitions between paragraphs. - Try to vary your sentences so they are not monotonous. - Support every assertion you make with evidence from a credible source or a comparison of several. Connect all the ideas in your conclusion. You might want to move from a specific statement of the point you believe you have proven back to a more general discussion, reversing the order of your first paragraph, while adding a “so what” statement. This creates symmetry.
