Example: “Giraffes only eat plants which contain the best nutrients for their long necks” (Zookeeper 9).
3. Warrant
Explains the data and the claim
Putting It All Together
Example: English I is the most important class freshmen take. It is a vital course because “freshmen who take and pass English I at Norman High School are more likely to go to college” (Kutt 5). English I prepares students for the rigor of college and teaches students strong reading, writing, and studying habits they will use later in life.
Example: English I is the most important class freshmen take.
Example: Giraffes are the smartest animals at the zoo.
Example: English I prepares students for the rigor of college and teaches students strong reading, writing, and studying habits they will use later in life.
Example: Giraffes understand that their especially long necks need more strength to avoid injury. Healthy food and nutrients will help create the strength needed.

A quote should never be in a sentence by itself.
Every quote needs a lead-in.
Example: It is a vital course because “freshmen who take and pass English I at Norman High School are more likely to go to college” (Kutt 5).
