To ensure a good grade, please conform to the following requirements:Use scholarly sources from the Keiser University library at minimum. In other words, regardless of your project, you MUST use the KU databases (Proquest, InfoTrac, eLibrary, or EBSCO). You may also include sources from national or international newspapers, scholarly books, PBS or BBC documentaries, or government websites from the United States or a country relevant to your report. You MAY NOT use cable news websites, or any other websites without permission first.Use APA format. This means that you must include in-text citations after every sentence where you have paraphrased scholarly information. If you are using PowerPoint, you must include a small citation at the bottom of *each* slide. Because you need *every* sentence to be scholarly, you should, therefore have references for every part of your paper. It is understood that within a paragraph you may have some analysis of the information, but the information you are analyzing must be cited.
Please paraphrase by reading several paragraphs, setting the information aside, and then writing down the important parts that you remember. Cite that information. Return to the article and check for content to ensure that you have captured the main ideas from those paragraphs. Continue in this way until you have taken notes on each source. Incorporate those notes, with appropriate citations, into your project.
