You should do it in a five paragraph format. Keep it simple, but to the point. Start with the introduction where you discuss what the essay is about and state your thesis - which should be a three part thesis. In each of the three middle paragraphs, go through your three part thesis. Then the final paragraph should be your conclusion where you restate your thesis and summarize your argument.
