APA Style Research Paper Formats Are Not as Hard as They May Seem
I write stories. That’s what I have always done. In college I was an English major with a writing concentration. I just knew it was something I always wanted. My dad always told me there was no money in it. But I didn’t care. When I got my English degree I also received a teaching certificate. I knew full well it was something I would never want to pursue but I figured it would be safe if all else failed. Often I really fall for my characters and I think “I wish I could meet a guy like this. I’d date him.” But of course none of it is real. It’s all pretend. I can create anything I want when I write. I can make someone powerful, timid, boring or lame. I can make them a lawyer, a doctor or a gangster. I love the control I have over my writing. I determine what happens and who it happens to. Unlike life. My cousin was a high school English teacher at a very posh private school. She became pregnant and asked me if I would consider substitute teaching for her until she got back. Mind you everything I just said about fun, excitement and of course having the control just flew out the window. My cousin’s motive was two fold. Obviously she wanted someone she knew and trusted to teach her students but also she wanted someone who would relinquish the job when she came back from maternity leave. I was game. The week I started the students were learning the APA style research paper format. I obviously knew research paper writing was considerably different than writing short stories. But my cousin gave me explicit notes and also wrote down some tips for the students to follow in order to write their best research paper ever.
1.First create an outline. Research papers can be very difficult. The APA style research paper formats are not hard but it can be a little tricky to maneuver. Your outline will allow you to break your essay down into more manageable parts. It will help you focus on one part of your essay at once. There should be a section for each paragraph and the entire essay should be mapped out in great detail.
3.Termpaperwriter.org is a fabulous website to utilize when writing your essay. They have great blogs with excellent tips on writing all types of term papers or essays.
4.The APA style research paper format is an in text citation method. There is no need to fool around with footnotes. Please utilize the following example:
Last name, first name. (year published). Title of Book. City published. Publisher
For the in text citation use this method:
(Last name, year, pp. numbers of pages)
APA style research paper formats are fairly easy. If you remember to keep your citations in text and following the citation method listed above your paper should could out excellent.
