Abstract
Here you are to summarize the contents of this paper. This summary should be one short paragraph that includes the purpose of this assignment, the name of the cultural group, and the list of this assignment\’s components in narrative (not list) form.

Unit 5 Assignment: Elements of an APA Paper
Start writing your introduction here (12 paragraphs). An effective introduction prepares the reader by identifying the purpose of the paper and providing the organization of the paper. Please double-space and remember to indent all paragraphs throughout your paper (not block form!). Aim to keep your writing objective using 3rd person. Unless required for the specific assignment, please do not include a Table of Contents, as it is not APA style. Review paper guidelines on page requirements and number of sources required. Unless citing a classic work, aim to cite research articles and texts published within the past 5 years. Please use headings throughout your paper that are consistent with the papers scoring guide (that way you ensure you are adequately addressing all required areas.).
When you finish writing your paper, re-read it to check for errors and make sure your ideas flow well. A helpful tip is to read your paper aloud to yourself. If it does not sound right to your ear it is not working on paper!
