Finally, your test will have a writing section at the end. You need to choose one of the four categories discussed in class to explain How the Treaty of Versailles helped cause WWII (include either reparations, military reduction, loss of land, or the War Guilt Clause). Here is what to include
– You need an introductory sentence (you could start with a hook to bring the reader in or just go straight into your thesis/main idea)
-2 pieces of textual evidence (that means direct quotes from the text)
-2 explanations of the evidence (use your say mean matter for help!)
-A concluding sentence (restate in a different way, don’t just repeat your intro!)
