    I've been taught that the structure of my essays should be as followed:

    •Intro (stating EXACTLY what my argument is and stating which factor is the most significant. Then with 2/3 other contributing factors)

    •Paragraph 1: talk about the most significant answer using PEEL (Point, Evidence, Explain, Link)

    •Paragraph 2: next most important factor using PEEL

    •Paragraph 3: next most important factor using PEEL

    (•Paragraph 4: next most important factor using PEEL [if you have another factor])

    •Conclusion: sum everything up (QUESTION! How do you achieve an outstanding conclusion?)

    Anyways, linking back to my original question, I'm pretty sure this structure is right... But I'm only achieving a C Grade with it. I really want a B Grade in History. Other than making my argument stronger, is there anyway that my structure is flawed? Thank you for taking the time to read this.
