  1. here is my introduction

    the author of the Atlantic monthly covers a long going debate with an analogy: libraries and museums. should statues be shown as an exhibit in a museum? the debate origins from a moral point of view.some believe children should not see the human body, even as a statue. others believe you have the right to see God's beautiful creation.instead of cutting out the exhibition of the statues, the other offers a solution.they should have them restricted to mature audiences, such as libraries do with mature books.

  2. 1. What article? You can't bet that anyone here has read what you've read or even has access to it.

    2. There's no way to tell if an intro is good or not without seeing the rest of the essay. The intro should be written last, or maybe next-to-last. How can you introduce something you haven't written yet.

  3. Since this is for a released AP English Language and Composition essay, you should check out the AP website for student essays and help. If you can't ask your teacher for help, then start out by noting your major ideas about how the author makes his point. Make sure your introduction presents the big picture behind those ideas and explains how this affects the audience.
