Make sure that you write this as an essay, that you make collegiate use of topic sentences.
You must introduce your argument with a thematic statement of some sort that should be included in a brief introductory paragraph. A concluding paragraph should briefly restate your argument.
Grammar and spelling are important and any paper with multiple grammar or spelling mistakes will not earn an A.
