the American Republic

In this essay you will discuss three aspects of the Roman Republic and compare them to the American Republic in which you live. This essay should be two to three pages in length, for a minimum of five paragraphs: • The first paragraph is an introductory paragraph. It should introduce the reader to the topic and set the tone of the essay. It should conclude with a thesis statement, which is the argument you’re going to make and which provides a roadmap to the reader of where the essay is going. • The body paragraphs (minimum of three) are where you support your thesis. Each paragraph should be on a single topic. Specific examples are better than general assertions. • The final paragraph should be your conclusion. Re-state your thesis and tell the reader how you have supported it. The topics of your body paragraphs can come from the following categories (you need at least three): • A comparison of the Roman “Struggle of the Orders” and the American Civil Rights movement (required) • Comparisons of the structure of government • Comparisons of the territorial expansion of the two republics • Comparisons of the role and goals of education • Comparisons of the divides between rich and poor • Comparisons of the roles of women • Comparisons of slavery as it was practiced in the two republics • Comparisons of the role of religion in the two republics No plagarism
