Essays should range in the 350 to 500 word length. They should have three to five paragraphs with an introduction and thesis, a body of evidence that proves the thesis, and a conclusion. Review the rubric for guidance on this essay. Always cite your sources, both in your essay and in a bibliography at the end of your essay. You may cite in APA, MLA, or Chicago style.
