Essay Length (800-1000 words)
Format:  Your essay should have at least five (5) paragraphs.  The first paragraph should be an introduction and the last paragraph should be a conclusion.
Thesis:  Your essay should have a thesis statement.  A thesis statement is a single sentence that directly answers the question above.
Location of Thesis:  The thesis statement should come as the last sentence of your introductory paragraph.
Balance:  Be sure to take into account different events and people (name names).
Support:  Your essay should provide examples that support your thesis.  Examples of support to include in your essay are names, dates, key events, groups, and ideas.  These examples should be drawn from readings in your Jones text.
Also, your essay should use as examples information from the assignments found on our course Moodle.
In addition, You should include people such as LaSalle & O’Reily, the dates for the French & Spanish periods, groups such as the Africans (slave and free), Creole, Cajuns (Acadians), and Native Americans.
Chronology:  Generally speaking, your essay after the introduction should begin by discussing events earlier in time and then move forward to later events.  Don’t simply randomly and without a thematic purpose place events and people into the essay out of order in terms of chronology.  For example, don’t begin your essay’s second paragraph with a discussion of Thomas Jefferson and Louisiana and then in the third paragraph begin discussing the earlier prehistoric Poverty Point settlement.
Grammar:  Correct grammar and spelling must be used throughout your essay; do not use slang or text language.  Do not use vulgar language.
Plagiarism:  Your essay must be your own work;  do not collaborate in writing your essay; do not cut and paste material from the internet or any other source.  Use your own words in your essay.  Simply changing a few words in a sentence found in Jones and pasting into an essay is not using your own words.  Review Syllabus concerning plagiarism.
