You will introduce your paper by introducing the question you seek to answer, as well as reasonable answers to the
question. Next, also in the introductory paragraph, you will state which answer to the question you believe is best
supported by the evidence. This statement will be your paper’s thesis statement.
The next section of the paper will situate the relevant text (or texts) in its (their) historical context. You will be
expected to research secondary sources and, from that research, provide historical background information that is
relevant to understanding the question being answered in your paper.

answers are not.
Finally, your paper will close with a concluding summation of your overall argument.
