2 Create an outline for a research essay based on the information you found in Lesson 1. Your outline must include a claim, main ideas that support your claim, and details from sources that back up each main idea.

3 Write an essay based on your outline from Lesson 2. Your essay will be about the same topic: a famous hoax from history. Like the outline, it must include a thesis, main ideas, and evidence from credible sources. In this lesson, however, you will organize your content into paragraphs and add quotes and paraphrases from your sources. When you’re done, your essay should be about 900 words, or roughly three double-spaced pages.
