The textbook is the primary source of information for essays. Once you have incorporated information from the text, you may use additional sources to augment the information from the text. The majority of your response should be your own original writing based on what you have learned from the textbook. Please look at the evaluation sheet (2nd evaluation point), it states that the essay content is measured with what is in the textbook.
The structure of an essay begins with the introduction which is the first paragraph and it introduces the topic. It should include naming the main components of the answer. It should be at least 4 – 5 sentences. It tells the reader what the essay is about and mentions the main points. Then the body of the essay elaborates on each of the main points and it is at least 3 or 4 paragraphs of at least 4 – 5 sentences. The last paragraph of an essay is the conclusion and it is a summary of the main points of the essay. Before you write the conclusion, go back and read the question, then write the conclusion, summarizing the main points of the answer. It should be a full paragraph, usually 4 – 5 sentences. There is no new information in the conclusion.
CCU utilizes the APA style for citing and referencing. Under this style, you should have a short-form in-text citation at the end of a cited sentence (if you have quoted, summarized or paraphrased from a source document, and a complete reference at the very end of the essay in a reference section. The short-form citation is written inside parentheses and contains the following information: the authors’ last names, the year of publication, and the specific page number where the information was read. The year is included only in the first citation. In subsequent (short-form in-text) citations, you do not need to write the year of publication again. For example: A traditional bureaucracy should utilize a hierarchy or control that is spread throughout an organization. (Thibault, Lynch, & McBride, 2011, p. 85) At the very end of the essay, in a Reference section, you must then give a complete reference of each source. For a book, the APA format is: Author, A. A. (Year of publication). Title of work: Capital letter also for subtitle. Location: Publisher.
