APA SUCCESS TIPS
The first thing included in your paper after the title page is the actual title of the paper (centered by not bolded). Then you provide information to the reader about what the paper and purpose of the paper will be. You introduce the main topics that will be discussed.
Be sure to organize your paper. Use of Level headings is an APA appropriate format. Understand the use of the Level Headings. Level 1 headings should be used for the main topics of your paper (the 3 bullet assignments) and Level 2 headings can be used for each of the questions we ask you in those main topics.
Level 1 HEADINGS ONLY should include content about the case study, problem, situation you are discussion. Refrain from talking about an “assignment”. Provide information the reader needs to know about the situation to follow your thoughts and message. You are guiding your reader.
Avoid using “According to” related to your research. The more you use according to, the more you are using someone else’s words. This paper is about your thoughts. It is better to paraphrase then use a citation for your research.
Get comfortable using 3rd person when writing papers. APA formatting includes 3rd person. AVOID USING 1st person even when we ask you to reflect on your own experience. Finds ways to creatively write in 3rd person. This is a Leadership class thus we want to display those leadership skills which includes writing scholarly with APA guidelines and formatting in place.
