Term Paper Biodiversity and Conservation

Week 4 Library assignment:Term Paper Biodiversity and Conservation

Step 1:Start with the rough draft that you submitted in Week 3. Incorporate any comments that I provided for your rough draft. Revise your paper to make it flow smoothly. Reading your paper out loud is a good way to determine if the writing flows well, and which areas need to be smoothed.

Step 2: Proofread your paper to make sure there are not any spelling and/or grammatical errors. The final paper needs to be a minimum of 3 pages in length and it needs to follow guidelines for APA format, including:

1) a title page,

2) A references page, and

3) at least 3 pages of your original writing.

You should include at least 4 references: The American Museum of Natural History website, plus 3 additional references.

Be sure to use the information on APA Format found in the “Writing Help!” tab

For example, each of your references should be cited in the body of your paper using author’s last name and year of publication in parentheses, (Smith 2005). Every time you use an idea from one of these references, the reference should be cited at the end of the paragraph.

Step 3:Please submit your final term paper
