A step by step plan for how to approach the essay:
  1. read the question twice
  2. write a one sentence introductory paragraph directly connected to the question.  Don't write anything more in your introduction unless you have extra time at the end and want to come back to it
  3. use the structure of the question to list five paragraphs
    1. introduction (can be one sentence)
    2. first example or part of the question
    3. second example or part of the question
    4. third example or analysis
    5. conclusion
  4. write your body paragraphs
    1. start with a topic sentence
    2. use specific historical examples, not generalizations but something that happened in a particular place and/or time or statistics--these should be specific enough that you need to give your source (in parentheses in the text)
    3. write a concluding sentence that explains how your examples relate to your answer to the question
  5. write a conclusion summing up your answer to the question--one sentence is ok if you are running out of time
