Your essay MUST have a clear, concise, and specific thesis statement/argument that guides the rest of your paper. This thesis statement must directly respond to the prompt. Your essay MUST properly use Chicago Style footnotes or endnotes. Please consult the documents on Bb Learn regarding Chicago Style citations for any questions on how to properly cite your sources. (You do not need to cite materials from the lecture notes or the videos, only from the primary and secondary source readings.) Your essay MAY NOT use sources other than the materials assigned in this course. That means that NO additional research is permitted.  Please also title your paper. Your essay will be graded on the effectiveness of your thesis statement, your grammar usage and writing style, the clarity of your writing, your use of the materials we read for this class, and your use of proper citation style.
