Five Page Essay Due in a Week?

QUESTION
Five Page Essay Due in a Week?
I’ve never written such a longer essay in my life. I’m a sophomore in high school and my topic is the Armenian Genocide. Any tips on how to turn in a great paper?

ANSWER
Write long paragraphs. I am a freshman but have been in your shoes.

For intro:
Hook
Briefly describe what went on (3 sentences)
Write three or four main things that went on during the Armenian Genocide (these make up your body paragraphs; who did it and why, who were being killed and how, what was done to stop it, what happened in the end; these are suggestions)

Body Paragraph 1:
Brief opening statement (To begin with we have… whatever you want)
Supporting details (3 to 4 sentences)
Quotes (make sure you transition into [sentence for this] by building up to what the quote will say [i.e. We know that the Armenian government were discriminating on the Armenians.]; then you have your quote; then you analysis your quote [The Armenian government discriminated the Armenian people because they were *what the quote talks about*])

The other body paragraphs basically flow the same as Body Paragraph 1 shows so just follow that outline.

Conclusion:
Recap what happened
Reiterate main point
Tell us how we can learn from this OR what this teaches us

If you use this structure and make sure to add a lot of detail, I do not see why you can’t get a five page essay done about the Armenian Genocide. I hope this helped!
