is this a good beginning?!??!
The movie, "Swing Kids", is not a light hearted, family film, but rather one that provokes deep emotions and thoughtful thinking within the viewer. This movie contains interesting information that shows the viewer how difficult it was for German teenagers to stay true to themselves.
A good beginning to what?
DO NOT start any paper's first draft by writing the introduction! How can you introduce a paper that you haven't written yet?
Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:
Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement
Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.
Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)
Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
