Note: Your responses to
items 2-5 should be entirely based on scholarly references and websites (see
below). Your responses to items 6-7 can
be your opinion but should be well-thought out, relevant to the identified
child maltreatment issue, based on course materials and resources, and thoroughly

The body of the paper should be double-spaced, using 12-point font
and 1” margins on all sides.
Your reference page can be in any style (APA, MLA, Chicago) but

In other words, don’t mix reference styles.
Include a minimum of 6 references from professional journals.You

without first consulting me about the quality of the site.
You must also cite your sources
within the text of your paper. Please
include a citation for ALL factual information included in your paper.
You should follow the author-date
method of in-text citation. This means that the author’s last name and the year
of publication for the source should appear in the text, like, for example,
(Jones, 1998). One complete reference for each source 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
On the other hand, if you are directly
quoting or borrowing from another work, you should include the page number at
the end of the parenthetical citation. Use the abbreviation “p.” (for one page)
or “pp.” (for multiple pages) before listing the page number(s). Use an en dash
for page ranges. For example, you might write (Jones, 1998, p. 199) or (Jones,
1998, pp. 199–201).
Here are two examples for how you might use in-text
citations in your paper.
According to Jones (1998), APA style is a difficult citation
format for first-time learners.
