research paper the beat generation

I need a clear outline and thesis for my research paper. I prepare focus on the book On the Road and the movie Kill your Darlings. I try to focus on the features of the beat generation which is showed in both of them and then compare it. I have some questions about what is the result of comparing both book and movie, how could I connect both smoothly, why do we need to concern about the beat generation and how many parts should I write in my essays. I am working on the history part of the beat generation, but I don’t know what’s the next step.
