The Title of My Paper or assignment

This is where the paper begins. Notice that it is indented. This example is from Packer and Timpane (401). Of course I would provide a works cited page if this were a real paper.

The top of the next page upper right would be Student 2 for the name. Every page including works cited will follow this format. See pages 207 – 236 in text book, and page 269 for APA styling.

When you go to college – find out and get a great personal copy of a book on formatting for research.
