Formatting Paper Rules (APA Style)
Mrs. Overly

Mrs. Overly’s Philosophy on Effort: People will recognize you for what you’ve done, not what you talked about doing.

Paper Formatting Requirements follow the APA guidelines of college writing.
  1. All papers are typed, no exceptions
  2. Font 12
  3. Black-Times New Roman Font
  4. Double spaced
  5. One inch margins
  6. Maintain paper within min/max guidelines
  7. Students will use four digit number rather than names on papers
  8. *Papers with more than three spelling oversights earn no credit, no revision
  9. *Papers with more than three fragment/run-on oversights earn no credit, no revision
  10. Papers that extend beyond one page require page numbers and a cover page.
See below:



*Remember, you will earn no credit for completing 3/4 of a one page. 22 lines means 22 lines. You wouldn't want to drive on 3/4 of your tires would you?

*Rules will change for second marking period and become much more realistic to the professional setting.
