1)Introduce your essay with a clear thesis statement, giving your argument.
2)Then divide your argument into 3-4 distinct sections. Introduce each with a clear topic sentence that connects that paragraph to your thesis.
3)Use at least 2 pieces of evidence (either a brief direct quote, or an explanation of a scene per paragraph to support your point). Cite the page number from Jacobs in parenthetical form. (Jacobs, 33)
4)Proofread! You would not believe how often people mis-spell Harriet Jacobsâ€™ name in these papers.
