INTRODUCES THE TOPIC, CREATES INTEREST, AND ENDS WITH THE THESIS

Sentence or section 1 gives big, sweeping sentence(s) about the topic that puts it into perspective. (Think about this topic in terms of "in the past" or maybe how it has evolved "over the years." - Broad

Sentence or section 2 says more about what you started above, but you're getting closer to your thesis, so narrow the focus a little. (Think about this topic in terms of "today" or "presently." Has there been changes in the way people view this topic?) – Getting Closer!

Sentence 3 is your thesis statement. (It acts as a roadmap to your entire essay, so it’s focused. It answers the question, "Who or what am I writing about in this essay?" Everything you write in this important statement must be unpacked in your body paragraphs.) – Focused and Narrow

THE CONCLUSION FOR YOUR RESPONSE TO LITERATURE
Gives a Finished Feeling to the Whole Essay

Sentence or section 1 reminds the readers as to the purpose for writing this essay. This sentence or section is similar to the thesis statement, because it is narrow and focused. But do NOT simply repeat the thesis statement; that would be boring. (Close your eyes and say to yourself, “In this essay, I want my reader to understand that”; then, open your eyes and write the answer) - Narrow and Focused

Sentence or section 2 discusses why this topic is an important topic to discuss. (Do not add any new details.) – Reflective

Sentence or section 3 is the last impression you will make on your reader. It should be a lasting impression that demonstrates your desire to make life better by discussing this topic. (Ask yourself, “What’s the big picture?) – Broad and Contemplative

Now give a Creative Title. Is there some word or phrase in your paragraph/essay that could become an excellent, creative title?
