For AP Euro, I have to write an intro for an essay with a thesis statement that answers this question/statement.
"Compare and contrast the political and economic effects of the Cold War on Western Europe with the effects on Eastern Europe".

I'm really bad at writing intro paragraphs for essays.
Help please?
Peace, Love, Empathy.
you probably know more about this subject than me, but make sure your opening paragraph catches the reader's attention. maybe give a little anecdote relating to the subject, or try adding a little shock value.
Trick to those essays is the pattern- attn getter, restate the question, then your thesis outlining the topic of each of the paragraphs. I got a 4 on that test.
