mentioned in the working thesis statement/overview that you created for your complete research paper. However, you may make changes to best meet your needs as you see fit.
As we are writing the body of our research paper one section at a time, each section needs to be developed as a stand-alone essay. As such, each body section must have its own unique title, introduction, thesis statement/overview, body, and conclusion, specific to the particular body section being written.

You should have a minimum of 3 sources on the references page, each following correct APA format for the particular type of source, and each with a minimum of 1 corresponding citation in the body of the paper. While the minimum number of sources required for Body 1 is 3, the complete research paper must have a minimum of 15 sources. Information included from outside sources must be correctly quoted, summarized, and/or paraphrased, and must cite the source in order to avoid plagiarism.
Your Body 1 essay should be a minimum of 3 pages of text, not including the references page, tables, figures, or block quotations. This is expected to be a best-effort writing, and it will be graded as such. Grammar, capitalization, punctuation and sentence construction are very important, and an excessive number of errors will greatly affect your grade. Therefore, it is critical that you proofread and edit your essay, trying to eliminate as many mistakes and/or errors as possible, prior to submission. Only your first submission will be accepted.
This assignment is a Turnitin submission, so please ensure that you effectively quote, summarize and/or paraphrase, and cite all material from outside sources. Remember that you can only include sources on your references page to which you have made citations.
