  • Submit 8-10 double-spaced page literature review based on your topic.
  • Submit your Final Paper in a Word file for grading.

Specific Instructions for the Term Paper:

1. Customize the title page for your own paper. This includes editing the “Running Head” in the page header, the title of your paper, and your name. If you don’t know how to edit a header in Word, Google for instructions on how to edit a header in the version of Word you are using and follow the instructions.

2. Add a table of content with an outline of all your major points and subpoints.

3. Write a 150-250 word abstract for your term paper (on p. 2 of the Paper Template). The abstract should be a brief summary of your paper.

4. Add an Introduction

Introduction goes after the Abstract. Be sure the students include all of the following using level 2 heading:

  • The background of the topic
  • Statement of the Problem
  • Statement of the Purpose
  • Research Questions
  • Significance of the Study

5. For each major section of the paper, you need to customize the sub-headings. You may add additional sub-headings, as needed, but each section must have a minimum of three sub-headings, except for the Recommended Improvement section, which must have a minimum of five sub-headings. Be sure to be descriptive in your sub-heading names, so that I know what content you intend to cover in each sub-heading.

6. Add your references.

NOTE: This assignment has the classroom TII (TurnItIn) feature turned on. This means that once your assignment has been submitted to this area, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin.com database to generate an Originality Report with an Originality Index. It takes anywhere from a minute to 24 hours (or longer) for this report to be generated and returned to the classroom assignment area. Check often to see if the report has been generated.

The acceptable criteria for the Originality Index (matching percent) in this course is a maximum of 15%, which means 15% of the submitted paper has been matched with sources in the database and hence is not original to the student’s work not including your references. Your article summary should not exceed 5 pages. Turnitin is used in this class to assess the originality of your work–you must have less than 15% Similarity/matching. Paraphrase instead of using direct quotes to reduce your matching percent to 15% or less.

Submission Instructions:

Written communication is an essential tool for any professional. As with any skill, writing well is the result of practice followed by feedback and the use of relevant and appropriate sources. Therefore, the quality of writing is graded as part of this assignment. It is easy for students to plagiarize – cut and paste right into a text document. It is noted, “Many college papers are published on the web and students can even become members of e-groups which, for a small fee, promise to deliver ‘A+’ papers on every topic. Ways to cheat are abundant on the Web.”
