    Okay! Of the bat we know conformity is better than rebellion. That's simple logic (Rebellion leads to chaos, wheras conformity doesn't). So In order to make sure you seem smart let's make sure your paper goes like this; CONFORMITY IS BETTER THAN REBELLION! [1st Paragraph] The first thing should be your introduction. Since your arguing for conformity lets introduce your reader into scenes of chaos. Your introduction can go two ways, through factual/common sense statements or a very dramatic entrance. Fact/Common sense ( I am just summarizing, you'd have to go more in depth) Children yelling, trash on the floor, desks with sharpie, and the teacher is sending kids to the office. Welcome to a typical highschool. During this time children are in their teenage years, this is considered the 'rebellious' years. Kids no longer want to listen to elders..... etc. etc. Or Dramatic (Also just summarizing) Blood floods the street, screams of children echo off the building covered in spray paint. The day is of war. It is rebellion against Gaddafi's regime, no longer will the people of Libya stand for this "oppressive" ruler. It is a time of (italics) rebellion! Then give some facts of how much killing there is and how even today the regime of gaddafi still stands. etc etc and because of rebellion people died and there's tons of dead children. (You could argue for any revolution, not just Libya's, in fact I recommend you argue a different revolution.) [2nd and 3rd paragraph] is where you show evidence to support your claim that conformity is better. i.e. Schools where children behave preform better than those who don't. - Rebellion causes death to many. Parents and children relationships fall apart etc. etc. [4th and 5th Paragraphs] will show why conformity is better! i.e Society CAN ONLY preform as Society if everyone conforms to certain standards. (If you write well enough this should be able to support your WHOLE argument as to why conformity is better.) [Final Paragraph] Should be a dramatic and logical exit. i.e If you want to go to school with no conformity, good luck getting into college, even get through school. Or Would you enjoy walking over dead bodies and guts? Or would you rather sit in your chair and read papers? Choose conformity over rebellion. Hope this helps.

    For some more general assistance, check out jagatuba's second answer (on writing intros and your thesis statement) and then scroll down to nearly the end and read his second-to-last answer ("lecture 116") -- http://openstudy.com/users/matt6288#/updates/4f689be1e4b0f81dfbb57a42 That might help you out.
