A preview statement, also known as a thesis statement, appears near the opening of an article or speech and provides a sneak peek into the content. Occasionally, later in the text, further preview lines are utilized to offer transitions and prepare the viewer for impending topics.
After the initial phrases aimed to attract the audience’s attention, the preview statement appears in the material’s introduction. The preview statement puts out the essay’s or speech’s essential ideas so that the reader or listener understands what’s important and is prepared to pay attention to the proper topics. The specific nature of the preview statement is determined by the piece’s nature.
The preview statement for informative speeches and articles lists the essential themes with relevant connecting words. “I will first give the breed’s main standards, then describe the judging system, and then list some vocabulary used at dog shows,” for example.
Preview statements in persuasive speeches and essays focus on the points to be proven while briefly scanning the evidence to be provided. “I propose that eggs be included in a healthy diet and that current scientific evidence shows that they do not raise cholesterol levels or increase the risk of heart disease,” for example. A good preview statement flows smoothly from the introductory material to the body of the speech or writing.
