Research and Citation Exercise Directions: Support each of the major claims listed below with researched material collected from at least one source (no more than two sources) for each answer. You may use credible online sources or library resources to respond to each claim. Write one paragraph, with a minimum of three minor supporting sentences, to support each major claim. Use the major claim as the paragraph’s topic sentence; then, support the claim with a combination of direct quotes, paraphrased material, and your own ideas. ______________________________________________________________________________ Example: The following paragraph (“answer”) illustrates how you should complete this exercise.
