Resonance structure of benzene

What is the resonance structure of benzene (the aromatic ring compound)?

I don't believe we are expected to know this for Chem 14A, but one of the TAs mentioned a simplified version in which benzene is represented by a hexagon with three double bonds. The carbons are implied to be located at each point with the correct amount of hydrogen atoms attached.

You do need to know the resonance structure of benzene
