STRUCTURE 

Strong Title – Create a Strong title that resonates with the prompt, something creative and that would take your eyes. 

Intro

  • Strong Hook, DO NOT use rhetorical questions. DO NOT make unsubstantiated claims.
  • What is the argument? What do I want to prove in the body paragraphs? 
  • The thesis is the annunciation 
  • Present the argument, make it a very strong argument that can be explained and broken down into three pieces. 
  • Don’t give background in the intro paragraph, since the audience already is an expert on the information. 
  • Thesis statement should be a good length
  • Nothing general at all
  • No filler sentences, get straight to the point of the argument 
  • State the argument up front
  • Stick to the fact

TAKE INTO FACTOR THAT 

Descriptive vs. perspective 

  • Herodotus’ purpose of history is to describe past events so that they don’t die in the oblivion of the past. He gives the past immortality, keeps the past events alive.
  • Thucydidies is writing a prescription of the past, so that people don’t make the same pasts. Reading about the past gives rules you can apply in the present. 
    • Example: World War II, explanation of what happened and why, which leads to an account of what occured. Like a prescription from the doctor, it’s about the purpose and how to prevent it in the future. Giving tips about how to not mess up again.
