I have to write a five paragraph essay on the benefits of US expansion and the positive effects that it had on the philippines, cubans, china, and native americans.
I can't figure out how to start it.
Do not start it yet! The introduction is the last part that you should write.
You first need to formulate a thesis statement. Then outline three points that will support that statement. Then write these supports up in three paragraphs.
Now you're ready to write the beginning which should introduce the reader to your paper. The conclusion will summarize your thesis and the supporting arguments.
