Research Paper Guidelines and Topics
You are to choose a topic from those presented and give me a paper of a minimum of 5 pages and a maximum of 7 pages (not including your cover page or reference page). You need at least 5 references in addition to your text. The paper and the references are to be in APA format and I have posted helpful information in the announcements. In week two you need to tell me which of the topics you are researching and in week 4 you need to post your outline for your paper and the outline needs to be in an acceptable outline format. Make sure that you understand what plagiarism is and understand that it will not be tolerated. If you plagiarize your paper you will at least fail the paper and possibly the course.
