Develop an effective strategy for your introduction

Make sure each body paragraph has the following:

a signal phrase
a page number if the sources is paginated (a paragraph number otherwise)
You may, of course, have more than one quote per paragraph and/or include paraphrasing so long as it is cited properly. However, remember that the essay should be first and foremost your writing. The sources are there to support you.
your explanation of the quote (never use a quote that you don’t provide commentary for)
Additional observations or examples from your experience and/or research
Discussion and analysis that supports your overall point
You may include graphics–chart, table, or photo.
Make sure each graphic is fully integrated into the text.
Located near the text where it is mentioned/discussed

Add something to your thesis to answer the “So What” question
Include your Works Cited page with all your sources! An essay without a Works Cited page could be returned to you without a grade or given a zero. An essay that uses sources but doesn’t cite them is plagiarism! Three sources are required for the essay. Random websites are not acceptable sources. Government websites are acceptable, as well as websites from reputable organizations. You may include additional sources, but should not have more than five sources. The essay should be mostly your work with sources used to support the claims you are making.
Students must use quotes from each source in the essay.
