        b) Develop an assertion (thesis statement) in direct response to the prompt
        c) Crate a bulleted, detailed list of the relevant knowledge needed to effectively respond to the prompt
        d) Identify a study you can use to support that relevant knowledge and your assertion. Include the Aim,
            Methodology, Procedure, Findings (results) as well as strengths and weaknesses of the study identified.
