Audience: Construct a paper highlighting one example of “Emerging Technology”. What you choose is up to you. Be creative. Report on something that is new and revolutionary. You can report on anything as long as it is technology focused.
I prefer the APA (American Psychological Association) style. If you want to use another one, check with me. Use one of these APA Research Style Guides (http://mason.gmu.edu/montecin/stylgui.htm).
Length – 800 words double spaced pages of text (not including graphics, cover page, appendices, or reference page). 4 “rambling” pages is not better than 3 clear, fully developed pages. An “A” paper will far exceed 800 words. !0% reduction for each 80 words short of the minimum
Margins – 1 inch top, bottom, left, right
Cover Page – in APA style (which should include your name, course and section, date, my name. The title should give your audience a good idea of what your paper is about – not tease your audience. For example, a clear title might be: The Internet – Changing the Way Students Learn and Teachers Teach.
Pagination: Put page numbers in top right hand corner of each page, including the cover page. Also include your last name and abbreviated title: Smith – Internet 2
Sources: Take notes on your sources and photocopy or print out original source material. I may ask to see them. For long articles, photocopy the first page, the pages you quote from, and the reference page (if there is one). Check out the NCCU Library. Don’t rely entirely on the Internet for sources.
Use a minimum of 5 varied and CURRENT sources (at least three from the past year 2013) – for example, journals in your major, Internet sources, interviews (no textbooks, please or encyclopedias – unless they are specialized encyclopedias in your field of study and you are using them for definitions of concepts.
Documentation: Follow the online APA Style Guide (latest version) for documenting the sources in your text and your Reference Page. If you are unsure about a particular source, we can discuss it.
Use parenthetical citations (citation information in text between parenthesis) for information that is someone’s opinion and is not common knowledge. Give parenthetical citation information for quotation sand paraphrases. Include page number for direct quotes. APA requires the date be included in in-text citations:
As Smith (1993) stated, “magazines for the general public generally have less reliable evidence than scholarly or professional journals” (p. 2).
