Long essay would be a traditional essay that typically five paragraphs long. The first paragraph should introduce the topic and state the student's position / answer to the question. It should contain between three-five (3-5) complete sentences, including the thesis statement for the essay. The second, third, and fourth paragraphs are the body paragraphs.

Citations must adhere to the Chicago Style format but perfection is not expected. An example of common citations is included on pages four and five of this edition
