Submit assignments in Word® documents and templates only, posted in the Dropbox.

All papers should have a separate title page, which includes name, paper title, and university.

Article reviews should have topical flow with like subjects in each paragraph.

Proofread your papers before submitting. Spell check is not foolproof.

There should be no copied information. Use critical thinking skills to understand the material researched.

According to APA, academic papers should be third person.

Academic writing is a formal writing style, sharing information and facts (theory).

Fully describe the concepts and theories; what does the information mean? If you make a statement such as, “All people who break the law should improve their communication skills to stay out of jail,” you mustsubstantiate that statement. If that statement is not your own thought or is a statistic, cite it. If it is your opinion, state that and explain what led to that conclusion. Provide enough information to validate and explain statements.
