Did Soldiers Fight in the Civil War Over Slavery?

Argumentative Essay 2
You will write an original essay over one of questions listed at the end of these instructions. This essay will basically be an expanded and highly polished version of those from the Reading Responses. I expect the essay to be free of grammatical errors. Punctuation will be taken into account as well. You must use the correct format given below. Papers that go below the minimum required length will lose substantial points, or result in an F. Late papers will not be accepted.
The paper must be typed using 12pt. font using Times New Roman and 1” margins. The paper should also be double spaced and reach the minimum required length of two full pages. The paper should also not exceed three pages in length. The title of the paper should be the reading question you are responding to. Be sure to indent at the beginning of each paragraph.
The heading should be single spaced and placed in the “Header” section of your paper. Put your name at the top left corner of the page. Put the name of the class under your name. Put the date under your class name. It should look like what you see at the top of the page.
The introduction should be a small paragraph (around 3-5 sentences). The first sentence should reiterate the reading response question do not simply rewrite the question at the beginning of the introduction. The following sentences should convey your stance on the argument, followed by a brief sentence or two that cover the main points of your body. The introduction is arguably the most important part of the essay. You must set the introduction up correctly in order for the rest of the essay to make sense. Feel free to email me your introduction so that I can provide feedback well before the essay is due.
The body of your paper should consist of 2-3 specific examples from the Berkin text that directly bolster your argument. Expand on each idea carefully. I do not want a summary of what Berkin has written. Instead, state the example, and analyze the importance of this example and how it relates directly to your argument. Remember that you are writing an argumentative essay, and as such you should pick examples and statements from the text that make your point clear. Be sure to use quotes, but stay away from any that are longer than two sentences. 1-2 quotes per each specific example is the most you should have. Make sure each sentence naturally flows from the previous one in order to make a coherent paper.
Be sure to use a proper quoting format. An example would be: Berkin stated, “Quote text” (Berkin 3).
The conclusion should be no longer than the introduction (around 5 sentences). The conclusion should reiterate the reading response question, as well as the points you made in the body. The conclusion should be a brief summary of what you wrote about in your paper.
Works Cited
Be sure to include a Works Cited page with the book’s information. I prefer Turabian or the Chicago Manual of Style, but you can use any official citation guide you choose.
