Length of paper: 5 typed double-spaced pages.
Font and font size: Times Roman, 12 point.
Required Section Headers:
Below are APA formatted section headers that I’ve created for you to ensure that you completely address all required sections. You must still create a title page, page headers and numbers a reference page, etc. Do not alter these and use them EXACTLY as they are. Also, as any good writing style dictates, you should have a brief part before these section headers introducing the reader to your topic and a brief part summarizing at the end (an intro). The desired outcome here is a thorough AND well written and formatted paper.
