Your Introduction paragraph:

Think of an appropriate hook for your introduction. Stay away from the questioning method that you were taught as a freshman. Instead, use an
interesting story that is relevant to your topic, an interesting quote/fact, an attention grabbing statement that should shock the readeretc

For the connection, you should:

1. Set the context provide general information about the main idea, explaining the situation so the reader can make sense of the topic and the
claims you make and support
2. State why the main idea is important tell the reader why he or she should care and keep reading. Your goal is to create a compelling, clear,
and convincing essay people will want to read and act upon

Finally, write your thesis statement as your last statement of your first paragraph. Make sure to include the proper transition words where necessary.
