Guidelines for Writing the Final Paper
• Address the topic of the paper with critical thought.
If possible, provide a context of a first-person experience where you saw this academic concept in operation. Do not simulate third-party statements of experience.
Readdress the concept and the experience with critical thought. That is, what is your response to the content, either positive or negative, and then defend your position. If multiple options/alternatives/positions are present and are being rejected you must also defend the reasons for rejecting an option.
• Conclude with a restatement of the thesis and a conclusion paragraph.
• Paper must be eight double-spaced-pages in length, exclusive of Appendix, References,
• Exhibits, etc., and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide.
All charts, graphic, pictures or other information goes in an appendix when writing a formal paper. This appendix should follow the reference page. You must refer the reader to the appendix in the body of the paper. This appendix tip will help you whenever you have extra information you would like to add to your paper (formal & informal) for the reader
