You will write an essay in response to the following question:
How did the rise of sectionalism increase tensions over slavery within the United States in the mid-19th century?
This quarter you will write an essay that has an introduction, TWO body paragraphs, and a conclusion. You must look at the rubric for guidance and include the following:
An introductory paragraph that includes a hook, a brief summary of your topic, and most importantly a strong thesis statement.
Two body paragraphs that are at minimum 8 sentences each. Each should includes two points that are supported by two pieces of evidence. This evidence should come from outside research.
A conclusion that sums up your argument, restates your thesis to reconfirm it-you must reword it, do not simply copy and paste.
This essay should be in MLA formatting and when you reference a source, you must use correct in text citations.
