Your 5 article research project for this class is due at the end of Week 3 — Sunday at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Upload to the Assignment link. Submit as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file or as an .rtf file ONLY.
Here is how you complete your project for Week 3:
Using your reference list and project template from week 2’s assignment, complete the project by adding a 250-word summary of each article under its reference. You need to summarize each article factually, using your own words, and refrain from using quotes and opinion. In addition, please make sure your sources do not include encyclopedias, book reviews or article citations.
Have another person proof your project. Please use Times New Roman 12 point font.
If you need help with references, I highly recommend using www.citationmachine.net Select “APA” from the menu on the left, and then your type of source. Plug in the information and it will create the references for you.
