Essay Format APA Study Guide ● Make sure you capitalize proper nouns, including author names and initials (Example: H. Holt) ● If you name the title of a source within your essay, capitalize all words that are four letters long/greater (Example: Education and Democracy) Exceptions are shorter words that are pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and nouns (Example: Modern Youth Education, There is More Than You Think.) ● Italicize/underline the titles of longer works like your movies, TV series, books, documentaries, etc. (Example: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One or The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two) ● Quotation marks go around shorter titles or articles (Example: “Total Sorority Move”) ● APA is always double spaced, 12 point font ● For this essay just put your name on the left hand side, top of the page, for your header Citations! The best citation website that I used is http://www.citationmachine.net/apa/cite-a-film/manual 1. You click what category you need a citation for 2. You type in all the information that you researched for the source prior to doing the form (author, director, producer, release date, URL, etc.) 3. It creates a citation for you to copy and paste 4. Hint: Do not forget to un-highlight the background 5. Do not forget to check it to the criteria below Criteria for APA Citations for reference page: To cite a film Producer, F.M. (Producer), & Director, F.M. (Director). (Release Year). Title of motion picture [Motion picture]. Country of origin: Studio. To cite a book Author, F.M. (Year of Publication). Title of work. Publisher City, State: Publisher. To cite an article Author, F.M. (Publication year). Article Title. Periodical Title, Volume(Issue), pp.-pp. doi:XX.XXXXX or Retrieved from journal URL How to cite a lecture Author, F.M. (Publication Year). Name or title of lecture [file format]. Retrieved from URL How to cite Author, F.M. (Year, Month Date of publication). Article title. Retrieved from URL Structure of Essay (5 paragraphs): 1. Intro to question & your stance 2. Objection 3. Response to Objection 4. Objection #2 5. Response to Objection #2 6. Conclusion & restate your stance Example: **Insert your name in the top left corner of the header, insert your title in the middle of the page, double-space, 12 point font, black, Times New Roman, 5 paragraph format** 1. Is rushing a sorority buying your friends? I don’t think rushing a sorority is just buying your friends. It is becoming a part of a wonderful organization that allows you to meet girls with the same values, standards and goals. 2. “Some would argue…” that the fees you must pay to rush is looked at as paying in order to be part of a social organization. 3. “My response to that objection…” would be that although you pay your dues, like you would to be apart of any organization, you are paying in order to make certain events possible! An example of an event would be the philanthropy events. This philanthropy event is way more than just a social gathering, it helps the community. 4. “Some people would object to that statement…” and say that a lot of events aren’t community friendly because it limits who comes to events based off of who is in a sorority and who paid their dues to be in that sorority. 5. “Although some people see…” sororities as paying for friends because of events being closed off to ‘non-sisters’, I believe that sororities are giving a certain level of exclusivity, making you feel a special connection to your newly found friends in a team aspect. It is very similar to trying out for a baseball team and just simply paying to play. 6. “In conclusion… or so you see,” I believe rushing a sorority is more than just paying for your friends because you an introduced to like-minded girls, put on amazing philanthropy events that help the community and create a team bond with the girls in your chapter. **Insert new page for reference page and a new page for Outline**
