Title Your Paper

Please match your title page and the title on page 2. Do not use the actual word, Introduction, to title your paper. Begin writing your opening or introduction section under your paper title. This section should include the main themes or topics you will specifically address with integrated literature support. Double space the entire document. Be sure to indent the first line of each paragraph by pressing the ‘Tab’ key one time on the keyboard.

Note: Not all assignments will require the use of section subheadings but some may. The Level 1 and 2 Heading examples are provided here to help guide you when using subheadings.

Level 1 Heading

Paragraphs should be fully developed with at least three well-thought out, complete sentences with integrated literature support. Try to avoid placing one reference at the very end of your paragraphs. Integrate the literature so the reader understands what part of the paragraph is supported by the citation. Please make sure you include citation(s) from the literature. Whenever words such as literature, research, study, or studies are mentioned in a narrative or you provide numerical/statistical information, you should use in-text citations. If the word examples in italics above are plural, then at least two citations are needed. If these words are singular, then one is needed.

Level 2 Heading

Begin your Level 2 content with a fully developed paragraph and provide leverage from the literature to support your statements, assertions, claims, rationale, etc. With any subheadings, such as Level 2, 3, etc., you need at least two of each subheading. If you plan to use Level 2 headings, make sure your Level 1 includes content before creating a Level 2. A Level 2 heading should serve as an expansion of your Level 1 content and provide more details.

Level 2 Heading

Again, if you use Level 2 headings, make sure you have at least two Level 2 headings. As a scholarly writing tip, please try to avoid colloquial expressions, slang, conversational writing, and anthropomorphisms. Anthropomorphisms give inanimate objects human attributes. You want to make sure your writing is precise and clear in your intent to demonstrate your scholarly tone (refer to the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual).

Level 1 Heading

You may decide to use only Level 1 headings in your papers, especially if your papers are only a few pages. Try to avoid using this author, this student, this writer, etc. You do not need to refer to yourself when you are the one writing the paper, unless the paper calls for use of first person. Then, you can simply write or me, etc., if you write in first person. When you write in third person, focus on demonstrating your analysis and voice through the literature. Leverage the literature to support your position and rationale. Using this author or this writer is really neither first nor third person.

Conclusion

Make sure you include a conclusion in your course assignments. A conclusion helps you summarize and emphasize the main themes in your paper. Please review your paper again to make sure you addressed any basic writing and/or APA errors.
