Need help with my History question – I’m studying for my class.
Choose one of the questions below and answer it in the form of brief but well-developed essay (2-3 pages in length, double-spaced with 1-inch margins, as Word files) Your essay should have an introduction that sets the historic context, a thesis, evidence or examples to prove your point (use study terms!), and a conclusion. Make specific references to the relevant information in the textbook (i.e. page number) or refer to other sources (e.g. websites).
Please upload your essays as a Word file in the “Essays” module on Blackboard. Due date is Sunday, October 4, before 11:59 pm.
