Good Thesis Introduction
Swales and Feak (2004), meanwhile, focus on the research paper in particular.
They attempt to place introduction ingredients into a sequence.
For some, it may prove a useful way to present their introduction in their final draft; for other, it may just be a useful scaffold, something that they can improve upon once everything is on a surer footing. Typically, the thesis introductions that I see provide an introduction to the topic but not necessarily to the piece of writing.
The simplest solution to this problem is to provide a quick trip through the whole project in the first few paragraphs, before beginning to contextualize in earnest.
I am picturing a thesis introduction that looks something like this: What do you think about this as a possible structure for a thesis introduction?
Use it as an opportunity to spur the reader’s interest.
The summary should highlight the main points from your work, especially the thesis statement, methods (if applicable), findings and conclusion.
