Introduction
Introduce the reader to your topic. Think of a funnel > format your writing to go from very basic/general info to more detailed info. Introduce basic concepts, definitions, theories, general statistics on the topic(s). Any general piece of info that captures the reader’s attention and then introduces the reader to the paper.
Rules: do not use “quotes” – paraphrase and use in-text citations. Not using “you” or singular wording.
