Pros

  • A useful three-step list for writing the introduction based off previously drafted body paragraphs gives writers a good starting place 
  • The lesson does a good job of discussing how a writer may choose to eliminate text that is repetitive
Cons

  • The title of the essay does not quite match the content, as the lesson does not focus on adding specific details, but rather on adding the writer's opinion, ideas, and reasons for composing the essay
