And remember to include a concluding paragraph that sums up your argument.

You must provide footnotes (including specific page numbers) for all borrowed material (including from websites used in class), and you must include a bibliography. Refer to the videos from week 1 and the writing guides noted in the course syllabus for more information about this as well for proper bibliographic and footnote format.
The essay must be double-spaced, and you must include page numbers. Finally, remember to proof-read the essay before you submit it and make sure that your writing is clear and accurate.
