Please give me some ideas for my essay on The Chrysalids and the Japanese Internment.

I have to write an expository multi-paragraph composition that offers an explanation. In this type of composition, my goal is to share information with the audience. The information must come from several sources: not from the writer's experience only, but from what the writer has learned when exploring a topic. The novel and the media asset "The Japanese Internment" is the source for information in the multi-paragraph composition that I have to write. I also may include other valid sources of my choice.The expository multi-paragraph composition often has to have  five paragraphs: an introduction, three body paragraphs, each with its own topic, and a concluding paragraph.

I am trying to work out what it is you are actually being asked to do from what you have written. Are you meant to compare and contrast the issues raised in this novel with the Japanese Internment? Or what is it that you need to do exactly?

I suppose one way you could approach this question would be to think about the similarities between the treatment of deviants in the world of this book and the Japanese in the time period of the Japanese Internment. Both were shunned and excluded from society because others had decided that they did not fit into mainstream society for different reasons. This would be an interesting bridging point that you could establish between them.

You might also like to think about the reasons behind both groups being excluded and how they are similar and differ. In the case of the deviants, they are excluded because of the religious theocracy that is in control of what is left of North Ameria and their perception of what is the "right" form. In the case of the Japanese Internment, this was decided by government officials because of the war between Japan and the US.

Randomly The Chysalids was tagged to this question and I am unsure how to untag it but the novel has nothing to do with the essay I have to right.
