DBQ # Body Paragraphs

Can you make a DBQ with 4 body paragraphs each body paragraph referencing one document?

i personally do 3 body paragraphs: 2 supporting thesis and one for counter arguement. i think they will talk about this

Hello @ethan-wolfson

You can have as many body paragraphs as you want! If it works better for you to use 4 body paragraphs, do it! Just make sure that you mention all four paragraphs’ main points in your thesis and create a cohesive argument around them.

However, I would recommend using all 5 documents so that if you mess one up, you still get the 3rd point. Also, it’s always a good idea to include 1 paragraph as a counter-argument, as @annapham603 said.
