Homework Help: Essay- Added a bit more

Posted by Sara on Monday, March 28, 2011 at 10:15pm.

Im doing an essay and this is the format for it.

Intro of 5 or more sentences, where you introduce your thesis statement (that which you will be writing about - in the form of a statement, or point of view)

Two or three paragraphs, of about 8-10 sentences each, where you support that which you are saying with examples, and or reasons.
(body of essay)

Concluding paragraph of five or more sentences where you have proven your point of view.

There were two topics that I could choose from, and I chose this one...

Discuss three pros(for) and three cons(against) concerning Confederation. What was happening at this time? How did the final outcome of the Dominion of Canada come into reality? Which people were important at this time, and what strategies did they use - for and against?

Uniting the different parts of Canada wasn’t as easy as it seemed. It took lots of planning and negotiation. Everyone had different opinions; some opposed and some agreed about the idea of Confederation. It wasn’t easy to come up with an agreement. The people who worked together to unite Canada had a hard job.

Three Pros concerning Confederation were that a strong central government could be developed and then all the members of that government could share their ideas which would lead to the growth of the entire country. The railink would bring happiness to all of the provinces, and Halifax would become the centre port of trade. The country overall would become important and it wouldn't have to be dependent upon any other country. All could benefit from the union of the colonies. The three cons were that if Confederation was to take place, than the Maritime Provinces wouldn't be able to maintain their ties with Britain. Also, the French and English would have a tough time getting along. They are a separate nation, and could never become one. The Maritime Provinces could grow strong and independent on their own. At this time, Conferences were being held. There was the Charlottetown Conference, Quebec Conference, and the London Conference. Everyone was sharing their ideas on what should be done, and if Confederation should take place. The Dominion of Canada was finalized with the signing by Queen Victoria of the BNA Act on March 29th, 1867. People who held importance during this time were the leaders from the colonies, as they participated in the Confederation conferences. They were known as the “Fathers” of Confederation. All individuals who went to the conferences played an important role, because their opinions mattered. They tried to gather people on their side to either oppose or support confederation.

Confederation was fairly taken place. Many opposers did not want a central government to be built, and it never did get built. The whole nation became a federation. The colonies had been united.

(I don't like my conclusion and I have tried to change it, but its not working:()
