General Guidelines: • APA is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences • Typed, double-spaced, 1” margins on all sides • 12 pt. Times New Roman font • Include a page header (AKA the “running head”) at the top of every page • Essay should include four main sections: the Title Page, Abstract, Main Body, and References
Running head: CASE STUDY 1 Case Study: Parent Communication Ms. Robbeloth Arizona State University Title Page Include the title of the paper The author’s name The institutional affiliation (Desert Vista High School) All pages, including the title page, should include the “running head” (CASE STUDY)

Beginning with the next line, write a concise summary of the key points of your research. (Do NOT indent). Needs to be single paragraph double-spaces and between 150 to 250 words.
Citations: • If you are using the words or ideas of someone else in your own written work, then you have to acknowledge this by writing the author’s name, the year the information was published, and the page number if you are quoting. • When using APA, follow the author-date method of in-text citation. Meaning, the author’s last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text, for example, (Smith, 1997), and a complete reference should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper • If you are referring to an idea from another work but NOT directly quoting the material, or making reference to an entire book, article or other work, you only have to make reference to the author and year of publication and not the page number in your in-text reference. All the sources that are cited in the text must appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.
