Your English teacher has given you an assignment that is twenty percent of your grade. The assignment is writing a cause and effect essay. Cause and effect essays deal with why things happen (cause) and their products (results). However, your teacher wants you to write the essay in APA format. APA (American Psychological Association) is not a format that you are familiar with. On the Internet, you search for a guide to help you with formatting your paper in APA for cause and effect essays. The purpose of this guide will help you with cause and effect essays.

Search materials in books, research journals, and articles. Look for notes, highlight important points from the sources. Paraphrase ideas from the source material. When you are through reading your sources, start writing your first rough draft. Use 8.5” by 11” paper with 1” margins on all sides. The term paper needs to be double spaced and typed with 12-point serif typeface (Times New Roman or Courier). Label your figures with 12-point sans serif typeface (Arial or Helvetica).

Every page of your research project should be numbered on the upper right corner, beginning with the title page. Artwork and figures shouldn’t be numbered. The next step in your cause and effect paper is to write your rough draft. The order of your cause and effect paper should be Title, Abstract, Introduction, Research, and References.

The cause and effect’s paper’s title should be to the point and not go over twelve words. Center the title near the top of the page. The title should be typed in sentence case. On a new line, type your first name, middle initial, and last name. If you are named “Jr.” or “III,” put a space between the last name and the suffix. For the next new line of your cause and effect essay, enter the name of your college or university where you conducted research. If you don’t have a research institution, you can list the city and state where you conducted the research for your project. If you are researching outside of the United States, list your city, province, and the country.

The summary of your research paper is located in the abstract. The abstract should be at most 120 words. In this section, highlight the most important details of your research project. Abbreviations and special terms should be labeled (except units of measurement). Note previous research in this section.

On the third page is your introduction. Detail the purpose of the research project, background information, present your problem, give details to the problem’s importance, and identify works which are applicable to the paper. Your thesis and supporting statement should be mentioned in this section.

Next, for the research section, type your essay. In the first paragraph, make your thesis about the cause of a certain subject. You can use the supporting statements as the effects which support the cause. Detail in your paper topic sentences supporting your thesis chronologically. Place your evidence in this section from your notes and your research that you previously had made in the research stage of your project. Summarize your points at the end of the paper (final paragraph) and reintroduce the thesis statement to prove your points.

Finally, name your cause and effect essay’s sources on the references page. A guide to properly cite your references is located at the Purdue OWL Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/).

A cause and effect essay gives a description about the theories and results of occurring actions. By following this guide, you won’t have any trouble formatting an APA cause and effect essay.

In your English III class, you are assigned a book report on your favorite book. Your teacher wants you to have the book report done in APA style. You have never heard of APA (American Psychological Association) style, and this project would be the first time that you have worked with APA format. Follow this guide to help you in getting a good grade for your book report.

While you read your book, gather the basic information about the book such as the author, number of pages, the publisher, and the year of publication. Take copious notes on each chapter. Think about the characters, the theme, the scenes, and the overall message. Highlight the important points of the book. And, you should give an overall summary of each chapter. If there are articles critiquing the book, or giving an opinion on the book, be sure to print those to incorporate into your book report.

When you are done reading your book, think about the plot, characters, theme, and goals of the book. Read literature reviews and articles about the book. If there are discussion questions or Spark Notes for the book, get those to go over the content for the book. Take notes on each of the book’s elements, such as the plot, characters, theme, and main idea. Incorporate quotations from the book to write on note cards for future reference. For your book report, you should use 8.5” by 11” paper with 1” margins on all sides. You should double space the entire paper. Use 12-point Times New Roman or Courier (serif typeface) font for typing.

Number each page, starting with the title page. Page numbers should be placed on the paper on the upper right corner of every page. Next, the running head is the shortened title placed at the top of every page of the book report. The running head’s length should be 50 characters in all capital letters on the title page’s upper left corner. Arrange your paper in this order: Title Page, Book Report, and References.

The title page of your book report should be ten to twelve words and concise. The title should be centered on the top of the page and typed in sentence case. After pressing enter twice, center your first name, middle initial, and last name. If you are named “Jr.” or “III,” place a space between the last name and the suffix. Next on a new line underneath your name, put your high school.  If your high school is located outside of the United States, list the city, state or province, and country.

In the research section, announce the book’s title and the author’s name. Give an explanation of what occurs in the book, and provide the explanation in a summary. Explain the characters, the plot, and the theme of the story. This method can be done with non-fiction books. Evaluate the book and provide an explanation about recommending the book to others.

Reference your book with citations, such as (author, page number). Your references page is where you list your sources of your book report. To properly cite your references, go to the Purdue OWL Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/).

A book report tells your audience the significance of the book you have read. A book report communicates to your audience an effective message

Watching a movie is a fun opportunity to spend with family and friends. It serves as magnificent entertainment. Everyone loves to be a critic. But, your drama teacher has made an assignment for you to watch a movie and make a critique about the movie. She wants you to format the paper in APA style.

APA, or American Psychological Association, format is widely used in the social sciences, education, and psychology.

Making a critique can help improve your critical thinking and information gathering skills. In your critique, you can explain why the movie is poor or why the movie was good. There are certain steps in creating a movie review.

First, select the movie that you would like to view for a movie review. While you view the movie, make notes of the different characters in the film, any dramatic themes and special effects used. If the movie is nonfictional (based on real life events and people), look up this information in articles, books, and journals at your local library.

Type on 8.5” by 11” paper with 1” margins on all sides. The movie review needs to be double spaced and typed with 12-point serif typeface (Times New Roman or Courier). Every page of your research project should be numbered on the upper right corner, beginning with the title page.

The next step in your movie review is to write your rough draft. The order of your paper should be Title, Introduction, Movie Review, and References.

Make your movie review’s title concise and not go over twelve words. The title should be on the top of the page and centered. The title should be typed in sentence case. Press enter twice, and type your first name, middle initial, and last name. If you are named “Jr.” or “III,” put a space between the last name and the suffix. For the next new line of your movie review, enter the name of your high school. If you are not in school, you can list the city and state where you made the review. If you are researching outside of the United States, list your city, province, and the country.

For your introduction to your movie review, detail the film’s name, director, producer, top two or three movie stars, and release date. Mention the film’s purpose or theme.

In your movie review, tell the movie’s plot in five to eight sentences. Include the protagonist (the main character) and the antagonist (the protagonist’s enemy). Detail what occurs in the movie. Get to the point, but be detailed so that your audience will have a good idea of the story. Discuss the reason why you are giving a movie review, to show that the special effects were good, but the plot was good, for example.

The body of the review will be details as to why you felt that the film was good or bad. For instance, if the acting was poor, give details of the actor who you felt did a horrible job in the movie. Critically give an explanation how the director could have improved your bad points of the movie. Tell what could improve the film. Note the different locations and costumes that were worn in the movie. If the movie was based on a true story, compare and contrast with the information you researched in the library and mention whether or not the filmmaker gave historical accuracy to events in the movie.

List your movie as a source on your reference page as well as any other sources that you used for your movie review. Italicize your movie on your paper. A guide to

properly cite your references is located at the Purdue OWL Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/).

A movie review is a critique of what you have watched in theaters or at home. Through this guide, you can write a movie review in APA style.

It is the middle of the semester. And, you have been assigned with a term paper as your final for your college American Government class. The requirement is that the paper is ten pages long, be about the American Revolution, and be in APA (American Psychological Association) format. But, you have never been taught APA format in high school, and now in college you are looking for a guide to write your term paper. Well, this is your guide to write a term paper in APA format.

Gather materials from books, research journals, and articles. Look for notes, highlight important points from the sources. Paraphrase ideas from source material.

The next step in your research project is to write your rough draft. The order of your term paper should be Title, Abstract, Introduction, Research, and References.

Your term paper’s title should be concise and not go over twelve words. The title should be centered and near the top of the page. The title should be typed in sentence case. Press enter twice, and type your first name, middle initial, and last name. If you are named “Jr.” or “III,” put a space between the last name and the suffix.

If you don’t have a research institution, you can list the city and state where you conducted the research for your project. If you are researching outside of the United States, list your city, province, and the country.

The abstract is the summary of your research paper. Located on page two, the abstract should be at most 120 words. In this section, highlight the most important details of your research project. Abbreviations and special terms should be labeled (except units of measurement). Note previous research in this section.

On the third page is your introduction. The purpose of the research project, background information, and problem should be presented. Provide details to the problem’s importance and identify works which are applicable to the paper. Your hypothesis and variables should be mentioned in this section.

For the research section, describe your research project, what you have found, and your conclusions. Include evidence from your notes and sources. Do not copy your sources word for word, because that would consist of plagiarism. Cite internally your citations in author and page format, such as (Author, page number). Make sure you have correct grammar and spelling throughout your report.

Finally, name your research project’s sources on the references page. A guide to

properly cite your references is located at the Purdue OWL Writing Lab
