I have to write an essay on second hand lion about an important idea in the film and why it is a worthwhile idea in the film.

I want to do the importance of the past because of the flash backs do you think this is the right idea and if so what should my 3 paragraphs be about

  • English -

    First of all, you need to decide what you want to say about why the past is important -- to the characters in the film and to us in everyday life.

    Then make sure you follow the writing process:

    1. Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    2. Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    3. 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?
