Word Count and Structure Guidelines
- 750 to 1000 words (not including title, headings, or bibliography)
- Include a title page that includes your name and cohort.
- An introduction that summarizes the entire paper. (5-10 sentences).
- Note that this is not a description of what the paper is about but a summary of the entire paper. In other words, if someone only read the opening paragraph, would they have a strong understanding of your analysis and recommendations?
- Strengthen your storytelling by using numbers and charts, where/if relevant.
- Provide a minimum of three (3) relevant sources, cited in A.P.A. format.
Pitfalls to Avoid
- Do not answer the paper in a Q&A format or bullet points.
- Avoid explaining your process, especially with language such as "I did". This of this more like a documentary where you are the narrator.
