The paper shall contain a minimum of 2500 substantive words, not including the cover page, abstract and reference page and must be written in APA style and formatted in a manner consistent with the most recent APA manual. The paper must include a running head, page numbers, cover page, abstract and and reference page, none of which are included in the minimum word count.
References must be cited (in-text) using the APA format. A minimum of five (5) references are required. Using the minimum number of references demonstrates only the minimum amount of research and will not earn all possible points. YOUR TEXT BOOK MAY NOT BE ONE OF THE REFERENCES. Of the five, two must be from government publications or professional journal articles. Do not use Wikipedia or other such publicly-generated sources as references in your paper. Additional grading criteria will include clarity of presentation, quality of content, mastery of content, care and attention to detail, organization, originality of presentation, and the value and interest of the presentation, as well as proper grammar and punctuation.
