What Kinds of Preview Statements Are There?

A preview statement, often referred to as a thesis statement, is placed close to the start of an article or speech and provides the audience with an overview of the content. Occasionally, extra preview lines are utilised to offer transitions and prime the audience for new information later in the text.

After the opening phrases meant to draw the audience in, the preview statement appears in the introduction of the material. The preview statement outlines the essay’s or speech’s main themes so that the audience member will know what is important and be ready to focus on it. Depending on the type of the work, the specifics of the preview statement change.

The preview statement for informative speeches and articles outlines the key ideas with the necessary transition phrases. As an illustration, say, “First I’ll give the breed’s main standards, then I’ll explain the judging process, and finally I’ll list some terms used in dog shows.”

Preview statements for persuasive speeches and essays concentrate on the arguments being made while summarising the supporting evidence. For instance, “I propose that eggs are a component of a balanced diet and that current scientific evidence indicates that they do not raise cholesterol levels or increase the risk of heart disease.” An effective preview statement seamlessly transitions from the introductory content to the body of the speech or writing.
