However, I always seem to have a MASSIVE PROBLEM with coming up a solid introduction, I usually spend HOURS thinking of a good intro and thesis(Fortunately, at the end my intro/thesis comes out great). When I get my intro and thesis I could just scribble forever in the body-paragraphs.
Ive been told to start with a quote relating to the subjects, but, usually I just begin with a term. For example, before I had a paper on Cultural Assimilation, in this case comparing my country (China) to the American culture, I started this essay with a brief explanation of the term "melting pot".
edit: Right now Im stumbling to create a good opening sentence for Women in Culture, comparing Gloria Anzaldua and Sotomayor. Is this considered a homework topic? I just want some input
