Title (not more than 12 words)

Your name

University

Abstract

The text of your abstract belongs here and should be between 150 and 250 words in length per the 6th edition of the APA manual. It should be a brief summary of the content of the paper without additional comment, opinion, or citations. The abstract should be one continuous paragraph without an indentation (begin the first sentence of the paragraph flush left).

The title of your paper belongs here (level 1 heading)

The first paragraph should be the introduction to your paper but it does not require a heading stating “Introduction”. The first paragraph is assumed to be the introduction to the paper and as such does not require a heading; simply offer a brief introduction to your topic.

The body of your paper begins on page 3 with the title of your paper/introduction and ends with your conclusion. The body should be 5-7 pages in length.

First theme (I prefer a level 1 heading)

The text of your first theme would go here.

Second theme

The text of your second theme would go here.

Third theme

The text of your third theme would go here.

Conclusion

Summarize the main points of your paper; make certain that everything in the text of your paper is written in third person. If you do not know what third person is, please research it on the internet.
