Instructions: a) Formatting: Part 1 should be 2-3 pages of content and 1 page of references. You must apply APA formatting style only for in-text citations and references. Do not include a cover page. Submit each paper as a Microsoft Office Word file (if you use a Mac, make sure to change your format to be compatible with Word). Use Times New Roman size 12, double-spaced. Do not cite Wikipedia. It is not a reliable resource. Wikipedia, however, may help lead you to other credible sources. Do not include useless facts and statistics for the sole purpose of reaching a page limit. Each part should cite the book and have a minimum of 5 external sources (see page 3 of the syllabus for a list of reliable sources). Read the rubric before submitting your assignments on Moodle. If you need help with any of these instructions, feel free to contact me. However, avoid contacting me the day of the deadline, I may not be available on Sunday.
