Remember to use you APA manual as you write and cite your work. As you get started, I'll answer any questions that arise, or point you to our tech support forum for more technical questions. I look forward to working with you this semester!

Below I further explained APA and the requirements for discussions and papers. Attendance is very important and communication, my goal is to see each of you graduate.

Late Work Policy: 10% for first week: 20% for anything later.

Make sure you are using APA Format for your Assignments. Please see below:

  • Type your essay on a standard-sized paper (8.5 x 11) and make1-inch margins on all sides.
  • Papers should be double-spaced.
  • Use a readable serif font 12p. APA manual recommends Times New Roman.
  • Type page numbers flush right.
  • There are no official recommendations concerning APA essay outline so it’s up to you how to organize it.
  • Keep your paper clear and concise. Avoid adding fluff and unnecessary details.
  • Use the first personwhen discussing your research steps (“I examined…”).
  • Use active voice, especially in experimental reports (“I interviewed…”).
  • Be careful in word choice when selecting a specific term to avoid bias.
  • Use plain languageand avoid poetic expressions and figurative language, like analogies, metaphors, and similes unless they help communicate complex ideas.

If you have a good example, creating your own piece of writing is not hard.

Start your essays with an engaging introduction where you present your thesis.

Argue your key points in the main body and support them with appropriate evidence and relevant quotes from authoritative sources (use quotes sparingly).

Write a powerful conclusion and include references list to avoid plagiarism.

Step 2
