Attached is the APA Style Guide from the Library. I extracted some information below as you prepare your Residency Weekend Research paper:
from Page 8: In general, a reference should contain four elements: the author’s name (“who”), date of publication (“when”), title of the work (“what”), and source data (“where”). The four elements always appear in the same order: Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source. Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source.
For this research paper, add a page to the end of the Research Paper and add the References
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source. Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source
Author, B. Q. (year). Title. Source. Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source
Author, C. N. (year). Title. Source. Author, A. A. (year). Title. Source
then the Citation is added inside the Research Paper and points to the Reference on the last page. An example from Page 11 and 41:

The Research paper will be written using the APA style with at least 5 works cited (2 of which must be peer-reviewed) and contain approximately 1250 words (5 pages). I recommend you research the APA style and bring your laptop to the Residency weekend to do your research and complete the Research paper.
Students will be assigned to teams to conduct the Research. Although each team will work together to find research materials, each student will be required to write and submit their own, individual Research paper. If students submit the same content, a grade of 0 will be assigned to each student whose paper is duplicated. There will not a be a chance to make this up.
Possible topics will be presented at the 1st class session of the residency and teams will begin research immediately to ensure papers can be completed before the end of the Residency weekend. During the last class session, each group will make a oral presentation, with appropriate visual aids, of their research.
