Due Monday: In a formal paragraph of approximately 100 words, explain how the masters exerted their authority over slaves and why they did this.
1. Typed: Times New Roman, 12 points, double-spaced.
2. Start with a topic sentence. Remember that this is the sentence which includes the title and the point.
3. Include at least two examples to prove your topic sentence.
Alternate between the evidence from the book, and your own (formally stated) commentary or explanation. Examples from the book must be cited. A citation includes the author's name, followed by the copyright date in parenthesis, and a page number in parenthesis at the end of the sentence. The period for the sentence follows.
4. Write a concluding sentence that makes your point. Remember that this sentence reflects the topic sentence though not everything is repeated.
