complete written assignment #2 below
Students will be required to complete two papers during the 8 week module. Your first paper is due at the end of Unit 4 and the second paper is due at the end of Unit 8. Rubrics will be used to grade your work. Assignments should be written in the format of the most current edition of the APA manual. Each paper must be submitted via Blackboard and emailed copies will not be accepted. Policies in regard to turning work in late also apply to these assignments. Your second written assignment is worth 20% of your grade.
Each written assignment will consist of a paper that is at least 3 full pages. Each paper must be double spaced with size 12 Times New Roman font and 1 inch margins on all sides. You will need to follow the example provided under course information and need a title page, body (at least 3 full pages), and reference section all in APA style. Please use complete sentences, appropriate grammar, spelling, and references. You will also be required to use in-text references in your work in accordance with APA style to avoid plagiarism. Information to help with your writing is provided under the APA resources section of the course information tab.
Please use at least three scholarly sources in gathering information about your chosen topic. Your textbook may be used as a source to aid in your discussion. Be sure to avoid using internet sources such as Wikopedia or other web-based resources that do not have strong academic backing if you choose additional resources. You will also be required to use in-text references in your work in accordance with APA style to avoid plagiarism. Plagiarism detection software will be used to scan each paper.
Refer to the writing rubric for a guideline as to how your paper will be graded. Students are strongly encouraged to use the writing center ( [email protected] ) for assistance with all assignments as APA style is historically a challenge for most writers. The electronic email version of your research paper, in WORD format (no doc.x papers accepted), should be submitted via the blackboard website.
