In this week’s discussion assignment (Week 3 Discussion) you identified a career for a research topic and did some searching to find credible information. Now it is time to gather your thoughts and resources and structure them into a Microsoft Word document. You will write a summary about your research topic and the resources you have identified. With this assignment, you are introduced to formatting papers in the style that will be required in most of your future coursework.
Create a new Microsoft Word document and save it with the title of W3P_LastName.docx. Save this document in your ITS1000 folder on your computer (in which you saved your previous assignments). The Microsoft Word document should include the following.
- A Title page in APA format.
- The body of the paper containing one paraphrased paragraph from each of the four sources that you found for Week 3 Discussion. Double space the body of your paper and use an APA-styled in-text citation for each paragraph. There is no need to include the quoted paragraphs here; only include your paraphrasing and in-text citation for each source.
- An APA-formatted running header and page numbers.
- References page containing four APA-styled citations for the sources you paraphrased in the body of the paper.
Make sure you put the research findings into your own words, paraphrasing and citing your sources where appropriate.
Here is an example for a reference of a Web site address:
Author, I. (Last edited date). Title of resource. Retrieved from http://Web address
Submit your completed document to the appropriate submission folder by the due date assigned.
