Start with an attention grabber!
Ask a question?
Begin with a quotation
List a BOLD statistic
Ex: " We stopped moving when we heard automatic weapon fire. We turned our heads to see what was happening, but it was impossible to see the men...we asked them what was happening...They were very upset; no one could talk. One of them finally told us: "They released us but the others are finished." (Jones, Gendercide Watch 1998).
Paragraph 1: Cont'd
Give a brief introduction as to the chosen topics
