Sample APA essay with notes
See UPDATED 6th Edition guidelines for TITLE page and HEADER:
WARNING: The OWL site is quite useful EXCEPT the new sample essay is filled with ERRORS, notably the citing of sources multiple times in a paragraph (cite year first time ONLY in each new paragraph, and do NOT cite paraphrasing at the end of each sentence if that paraphrasing continues over several sentences.)
This link will take to you the APA site where you can find a complete list of all the errors in the APA's 6th edition style guide.
NOTE: The header format has been corrected on the title page and page 2 ABOVE, but the remaining sample below has not been updated yet.
