Use one-inch margins and Times or Times New Roman font and double spaced.
Think in terms of concepts, patterns of behavior, divergent worldviews and perspectives, and the ways that particular historical experiences can help you demonstrate that you understand “what happened.”
Be sure to cite relevant facts from the readings and/or lectures to support your argument. In other words, demonstrate the validity of your argument; do not merely assert it.
All sources used – whether consulted, quoted, paraphrased, summarized, et cetera – must be acknowledged through a Chicago-style endnote (not footnote). The failure to cite a source may open you up to a charge of plagiarism. In other words, cite your sources!
Keep in mind that the superscript numbers used in Chicago style should run sequentially in ascending order (i.e., the numbers should not be repeated), even if citing the same source multiple times.
The essay question will be graded on the basis of both style and content; it is therefore imperative that your essay be well written and free of grammatical and spelling errors
