You should begin your research for the essay by consulting the text. However, you must avoid merely regurgitating the relevant pages from the textbook. Instead, you should think carefully about what the textbook has to say and elaborate on the arguments it puts.

Like all academic assignments, the more reading and research that you do, the more analytical and in-depth your assignment will be. Quotations and referencing ARE required, even in a short paper of this kind.
