Why did the Civil War happen?
1. Answer the question in a 500-800 word essay (about 2 to 4
pages of typed text) with an introduction that contains a
thesis, evidence, and a conclusion
2.
Use lecture/textbook information and the readings, from two
different weeks, to answer the question
(explained in subsequent slides)
Remember 2 things:
3. Do NOT plagiarize! In fact, do not take information from
outside sources because it does not count toward the grade. I
only count evidence from the weekly readings or the lectures
(and readings are preferred, as you’ll see in the rubric)
