[The body of your paper goes here. Each major section header is already included, and you should add appropriate sub-headers (APA level 2 header) in each section as appropriate to help guide the reader and organize your paper (see Case Study 1 Instructions). The header above is an APA level 1 header. Remember the importance of properly citing your sources. Paraphrase information (put the information into your own words, do not cut and paste) and then credit the author (Author, Year). If you use a direct quote from a source, you must enclose it in quotation marks like so, “this is what a direct quote should look like and it must include a page or paragraph number in the citation like so” (Author, Year, p.). Note that if there is no page number, identify the paragraph number and use the citation (Author, Year, para). Another way to cite a source is to state the author and year within the sentence like so: Smith (2002) showed that students are able to write per APA format.]

Conclusions [section header]
