Is it worth it to have an intro? Or just skip it altogether as it is a waste of time and include your thesis at the end?

Hello @cedraa108_51951

I would highly recommend having an introductory paragraph. Not only is it the easiest way to earn both the thesis and contextualization points, it also is a good way to set up the body paragraphs that follow.

Mr. Lagerwey will talk more about how to write the DBQ during the second half of the stream, and Fiveable’s “Ultimate Guide to the DBQ” is another excellent resource.
