Sally knew that her professor wanted her to do outside research and cite academic sources, so she opened up one of her library books and found some quotes that illustrate and define problem X. She added one to her opening paragraph:
how problem X is one of the biggest threats to society
today. It affects us in our homes, at school, on the
street, and everywhere we go. In a study written by Joe
Smith, it says: (4)
In the ten largest cities of North America,incidents of Problem X have been reported at an alarming rate in the past ten years.(5) A study published in The New England Journal of Medicine reported (6) a 14% rise in incidentsinvolving college students during that period,as well as an even more alarming 20% spikeamong women who own cats. (7) (Smith 43)(8)
She filled two more pages with paragraphs like this, quoting from several different sources.
