The thesis is the main idea of your paper which you will support with evidence in the body of your paper. Also, make sure to have a conclusion where you summarize the main points of your essay. Make sure that your essay has footnotes and a bibliography that is written using the Chicago Manual of Style. I’ve included and link below to help you out.
