The main purpose of this assignment is for you to become familiar with your APA manual, how to use the manual, and what kind of information is in it.

Before completing this assignment, view the APA tutorial website provided in the Module/Week 1 Reading & Study folder. Use your APA manual while viewing the various slides. Your assignment must have at least 2 pages of content, not including the title page and the reference page. You may have more than 2 pages and use more than 1 reference; these are the minimums.

Part 1 – Create a title page.

  1. Based on the information in your current APA manual and in the APA tutorial, create a title page and include all the appropriate content for a title page.
  2. Use the following as your title: “Lessons learned about writing style.” However, put the title into proper APA style. The way the title is listed above is deliberately not correctly formatted because part of this assignment is for you to learn and use proper APA style.

Note: In addition to all the appropriate information, include the author note on the title page. Use your own information as the author’s. You will see information about the author note in Chapter 2 of your APA manual. Your title page will include the running head, page number, your name, the name of your paper, and the institution name.

Part 2 – Create a question and answer page.

  1. On the next page of your document, list the following questions and your answers. Label this page with a Level 2 heading called “questions and answers.” The way that phrase is listed is not correct APA style, so you will need to edit the heading. This editing is part of the assignment.
  2. Answer the questions by first writing the question and then your answer. Number your questions so that it is clear which question you are answering. Use complete sentences and proper grammar and punctuation.

Questions:

  1. If someone wanted to know where to find the official criteria for proper APA style, what source would be used? (Write out the complete title of this official source.)
  2. How many levels of headings are identified in APA style? What would be the proper style for each of those headings? (i.e., describe how each of those headings would be formatted.) What is the purpose for using different levels of headings?
  3. What do the initials “DOI” represent? What is it, and why is it important?

The remaining questions can be found using the Jerry Falwell Library.

  1. What is the web address for the off-campus access EZ Proxy login? (For this question, simply copy and paste the web address from your browser. The point of this assignment is to be sure that you can find EZ Proxy.)
  2. What kinds of resources can you access through the Jerry Falwell Library?
  3. What is ILLIAD? Identify what the acronym means and explain reasons you would use this resource.

Part 3 – Create a page for your references.

  1. Create a page for the reference you listed in the first question in this assignment.
  2. Use proper headings, page numbers, margins, indentations, etc., for current APA style. You must have at least 1 source listed as a reference.

Be sure that the running head and page numbers appear on all pages. Save the document under the filename: lastname_APAmodule1.
