活動名稱The Beginning is Half of the Whole: Writing Great Introduction
活動內容This seminar examines approaches to writing the introduction for research. A key concern of writing a good introduction is that it serves to “sell” the rest of the article. If readers do not understand what the writer is researching, they will not be very interested in reading further. A good introduction clearly establishes the territory of the research and grabs the audience’s attention, encouraging them to read further.
A key area we will examine in this seminar is the “moves” or rhetorical explanations that are commonly found in introductions. These include how to express the claim of centrality in the research, and the language of defining and occupying your niche, or the research gap, that exists in the particular area.
