What makes an effective introduction and conclusion?

In this lesson, we will be working with our plans and looking at the relationship between the introduction and the conclusion. We will start by reviewing the model answer and considering how the introduction works. We'll then look at how sentence level choices have been used to add meaning with a skills review. Then, we will look at the model response again to consider how 'Ethos' is used in the conclusion. By the end of the lesson, you will have drafted out your introduction and conclusion.
