  • You may NOT use the same outside professional reference for more than one section answer. You are required to use your textbook when answering each section, A, B, C, and D.
  • You may NOT use an APA software program to format your paper. You are encouraged to use the APA handouts and tutorial available to you in the Writing Assignzment folder.
