2) However, hand phone has become one of the major addictions among secondary school students, although it can cause many social problems like take and share pornographic pictures or videos.

3) Due to the various negative impact and shortcomings they bring, bringing handphone school are not allowed.
So, the thesis statement that Miss Zu had been accepted are number 1.

Writing The Introduction

Assalamualaikum.. Hye guys. How are you? Today, Miss Zu teaches about Writing The Introduction of essay.

The functions of introduction are:

1) It attracts the reader's interest to continue reading the essay or get the reader's attention.

2) It supplies background information needed to understand the essay.

3) It indicates a plan of the essay's development (optional).

4) Set tone for the rest of the essay.

There are three part of the introductory paragraph which are the hook, the transition and the thesis statement.  The Hook means designed to grab attention immediately and give some indication about the essay;s topic. The transition means moves the reader from the hook to the driving force of the essay. The thesis statement means makes the contract with the reader about what will be discussed without a blatant announcement.

There are 8 types of hook:

1) Personal examples

2) Quotations

3) Fact or statistics

4) Rhetorical questions

5) Current events

6) Contrast to the thesis statement

7) Definition

8) Funnel / Broad to specific / general statements

Back to our topic for term paper. Our topic is "Authorization of bringing hand phone among secondary school students: Is it really beneficial or a nuisance?" I and Zubaidah choose four types of hook which are current events, rhetorical questions, fact or statistics and contrast.
