children? is my topic!
Use the APA Body Paragraph Template, located to your right under the Student Materials heading, to draft the body paragraphs for your final essay, due in Week 7.
You do not need to include the introduction and conclusion paragraphs this week, as you will be working on those next week.
The assignment requirements are as follows:
Write your thesis statement to present the supporting points that will be discussed in the body paragraphs.
Write at least one paragraph for each one of the three supporting points of your thesis statement. Each paragraph should be 5 to 7 sentences long and begin with a topic sentence. Include at least two additional details to support the topic. Also, include transitional sentences both within and between paragraphs to flow from one idea to another.
Include at least one paraphrase and one quotation from your research sources using the techniques covered in this week’s materials. Your paraphrase and quotation need to be used to support the points you are making in your body paragraphs. Remember that you are required to use at least two sources from the University Library. Include an APA in-text citation after each quotation and paraphrase.
Add your sources to the Reference list at the end of the paper. If you are using the same sources as the ones you used in the Week 4 assignment, you can copy and paste the references that you generated for that assignment.
Refer to the Paragraph Checklist (also attached under the Student Materials heading to your right) to review necessary items and make any needed revisions.
