Your essay should have a clear beginning, middle and end, meaning:
1. An introduction that states the issue you are addressing and states briefly how you will answer it;
2. A body of at least three paragraphs that makes claims based on historical data in conversation with secondary sources (are you agreeing or disagreeing with other scholars? Disagreeing with scholars is certainly acceptable, but you should also cite at least one scholar who agrees with your conclusions);
3. A conclusion paragraph that concisely restates your main points and perhaps makes a broader observation about the overall importance of the subject you have treated (i.e., how does your discussion bear on the broader themes of world history?)
