Use Times New Roman 12- point font. Double space all lines, and indent the first line of each paragraph. Your title page should be correctly formatted with a Running Head and page number listed in the Header area. Include your title, name, and school centered on the title page. Your written essay should contain at least three paragraphs (including an introductory and conclusion). Your last page will have the word References centered at the top.
All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited and included on the reference page. When you use a statement from a source, you need to credit the source in this format: (last name of author (s), year) at the end of the sentence before the period.
For direct quotes, use quotation marks and add the page number to your citation. An example of a citation for a quotation from page 5 of our textbook would be (Frank, 2014, p. 5).
Additionally, information you obtain from an outside source must be included on the reference page. If you would like additional assistance with APA, click here to access the CSU Citation Guide.
