Research Paper
Your name:
Your Capella email address:
The course number:
Instructor name:
Date submitted:
Title of your paper:

Italics represent instructions to read and then to be deleted once you are finished with your compositions. Use this template and u05a1 (Unit 5 Research Paper Assignment) instructions to draft your paper. WHEN IS YOUR PAPER DUE?

Your drafted research paper is due Sunday of week 5 and the revised paper is due Sunday of week 6. You will receive feedback on your draft from your instructor and by performing a peer review during week 6. NOTE: Unit 2 through unit 6 course activities, including this paper, prepare you for Units 7-10 when you will research and write a second paper. USE YOUR RESEARCH WORKSHEET

Start with your completed Research Worksheet Part A (u03d1) and Part B (u04d1). Take its prewriting of paraphrased resources and bring into this template at the appropriate sections. You may add more resources, but should start with those you already paraphrased when doing the research worksheet. INTRODUCTION, THREE SECTIONS, CONCLUSION NEEDED

Your paper needs to have an Introduction section, at least three sections in the body of the paper, and a Conclusion section which summarizes the key points of your paper. USE APA REFERENCING
Refer to the Library Guide (link is in unit 3 studies) for extra help with APA Referencing. Use APA in-text citations throughout your paper. If you have Microsoft Word 2007 or later, you can use the built-in Reference feature to enter the in-text citations. Bachelor degree papers must include a reference list at the end of the paper. You should only include references for sources that are cited (with in-text citations) in the body of your paper. As a reminder, please use APA Reference Format for your reference list. The technology-created references (i.e. Summons, Citation Machine, RefWorks, etc.) in the Capella Library will format your references in an acceptable manner for this course. Note that perfect APA Referencing with in-text citations and reference list is not required for First Course. With practice over several quarters, you will become more comfortable with this. Do NOT follow APA guidelines for formatting a paper. To format your paper, follow this template which is an appropriate format for this paper and most Capella undergraduate-level papers. APPENDIX A AND B ARE REQUIRED

Appendices are used for presenting detailed information that would be distracting in the body of the paper. IMPORTANT: Appendix A is required for u05a1 -- Unit 5 Research Paper Draft Assignment; Appendix B is required for u06a1 -- Unit 6 Research Paper (revised) Assignment; and Appendix C is optional (not part of the grade). If you have extra material that is difficult to format within the paper, place it into Appendix C. This would be charts, survey, questionnaire, resume, letters of recommendation, certificates, etc. DELETE ITALIC FONT WORDS

Delete the italic font when finished writing your paper. HINT: you may want to also keep a blank template open so you can quickly see the instructions again.

Introduction
Typically the writer will share something of interest to capture the reader's attention and introduce the issue. Also, it helps to include a specific statement of purpose. For example, the writer might state "This paper will address . . ." Adding an obvious statement of purpose not only helps the reader know what to expect, it forces the writer to focus and stay on task. The Introduction section should be two to three paragraphs. The Introduction is where the problem statement is clearly stated to invite your reader into your thoughts expressed throughout the rest of the paper.

Write your introduction here and when finished delete the italic instructions. HINT: you may want to also keep a blank template open so you can quickly see the instructions again.
