Well, first you have to decide what you want to say. What is your thesis? Why do you think he was a hero? Once you know that, you can decide what supporting evidence you will cite in your essay. At five paragraphs, you should have one paragraph of introduction, including a thesis that lists three reasons you think he was a hero. Each of those three arguments should be supported in a separate paragraph, leaving you one more paragraph for your conclusion.

You might start by defining your key terms. In this case, what do you think it means to be a hero? A villain? Is it possible for a person to be both at once? Hint: It has been said that every villain is the hero of his own story. Which characteristics does Riel have that would put him into one or the other category? This should quickly lead to a thesis with plenty of supporting evidence you can use to craft a draft of your essay that you can then post here for more feedback.

Louis Riel Hero because he stood up for his beliefs and peoples' rights.

Louis Riel Hero

I believe that Louis Riel was a hero because he stud up for his
beliefs and people's rights. He also was the leader of the northwest
rebellion. Also he created the Mďtis list of rights.

First of all, I believe he is a hero because he helped the Mďis and
treated them well because they were his own people. He also helped
the Mďtis because he was a Mďtis.
