Absolutely NO PLAGIARISM !!!
No dictionaries or encyclopedias, especially Wikipedia, are allowed. You must properly cite a source using the APA Style for anything that is not common knowledge, let alone if you quote from it.
Use standard formatting (double-spaced, 12 point Times or Times New Roman, normal margins, page numbering, etc.).DO NOT do a Title Page or sub-headings. Do a Works Cites section (which will not count for length).
And citation is extremely important as well. Do at least 4 or 5 citation and references.
