APA Assignment Instructions
Reviewed for Summer B
The main purpose of this assignment is for you to become familiar with your APA Publication Manual, how to use it, where to find information in it, and what kind of information it contains. Use information available throughout the entire Publication Manual.
This assignment must have a title page, plus two to three pages of content, and a reference page, and it must be in current APA format throughout.
Part 1 – Create a title page.
Based on the information in your current APA Publication Manual, create a properly-formatted title page in current APA format that contains the following:
Hint: “lessons learned about writing style” as you see here is deliberately not in proper current APA format.
Part 2 – Create the body of the document.
Write an introduction.
The next 2–3 pages of your document will contain headings (provided by you based on the questions below), with answers (provided by you). Refer to your course materials as needed to create a level one heading, in current APA format, using the following phrase: “APA formatting concepts” written in correct APA formatting.
Hint: The phrase “APA formatting concepts” as you see here is deliberately not in current APA format. If you would like to see examples of properly formatted levels of headings, refer to in your APA Publication Manual. Also, notice how the levels of headings are demonstrated within the sample paper in chapter two of your APA Publication Manual.
Next, you will need to create an appropriate level two heading for each of the questions below. Your level two headings will be unique and must serve to summarize the question that is being asked. Each level two heading must be relevant, be something you created, brief, and identify each question you are answering. Hint: Do not copy/paste the assignment questions as your headings.
When writing your answers, use complete sentences and proper margins, indentations, spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as required with current APA format.
Remember, organize this section of the assignment with appropriate levels of headings. Do not number the questions. Do not include any bullets. Use complete sentences in your answers.
Part 3 – Create your reference page.
You will create a reference page, using proper headings, page numbers, margins, indentations, etc., for the current APA format for a reference page. Your reference page will list the properly formatted reference for each of the following:
Be sure that the running head and page numbers appear on all pages. Save the document using your last name in the file name, as: yourlastname_APAmodule3.
