You may need to do a bit of additional research on your own to answer some of these questions, so don’t feel limited to using the above links. This mini-paper should be approximately three pages in length, and needs to be formatted in accordance with APA Style rules with regard to references, font style/size, and page margins/indentations. As this is not a formal paper, you do not need to include a cover page or abstract, but if you want to practice the format of those items (no points will be added or deducted), remember that those items (as well as direct quotes) do not count toward the minimum page length.
