North and the South. Confine your answer to the period from 1800 to 1850. Cite your essay.
The long essay would be a traditional essay that is typically five paragraphs long.
The first paragraph should introduce the topic and state your position / answer to the question. It should contain between three-five (3-5) complete sentences, including the thesis statement for the essay.
The second, third, and fourth paragraphs are the body paragraphs. Each body paragraph should contain between three-five (3-5) sentences, including the topic sentence (first sentence of the body paragraph, states a main point that supports the thesis) and at least two-three (2-3) specific examples per main point.
The fifth and final paragraph should begin with a restatement of the thesis. It should be three-five (3-5) complete sentences, and include a brief summary/conclusion of the student’s answer to the essay question.
It is essential to provide cites and footnotes from scholarly sources/journals for this work. Citations must adhere to the Chicago Style format but perfection is not expected.
