The essay should contain the following:
- An introductory paragraph with a thesis statement. The topic is: Describe the effect a prison sentence has on an inmate’s reintegration into society.
- Three body or supporting paragraphs.
- A concluding paragraph.
- In-text citations and a reference page. (Remember to reference and cite any supporting information you are taking from your articles-if it is not your original thought, there needs to be a citation and reference.)
Attached also is my expository brainstorming worksheet. I included the references that I wish to use as well as you can add some if you see fit.
