Step 3. Research your topic and report your findings in a scholarly research paper. The paper should be at least 10 double-spaced pages long, 12-font (Times New Roman), and should utilize at least 10 current (no source older than 10 years 2006-2017) references unless you are making reference in a historical perspective. Your research paper should present an objective look at all sides of the issue.
Step 4. Follow the general guidelines listed below to prevent deductions based on mistakes regarding APA formatting or grammatical/mechanical errors. Papers may be submitted to Turnitin to verify originality. This is at the professors discretion. Plagiarism is unacceptable and a grade of zero will be earned if plagiarism is greater than 20% on the original candidates report. Reports will be compared to both professional publications and former teacher candidates work.
