KEEP THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IN MIND WHEN
PREPARING YOUR REACTION PAPERS:
1. Finish out sentences and series appropriately. Do not use the term [etc.]. 2. Write sentences using proper grammar. Do not begin sentences with “And” or “But.”
3. Plagiarism is not acceptable. Plagiarism is to take and pass off as ones own ideas, thoughts, and or writings of others. (Webster’s Dictionary.) If you use other peoples ideas or writings give them credit with a reference. (Journal publications must be from the last 5 years.) The reference is an important part of the reaction paper, it allows others to read the original work if they want additional information. The APA reference style is preferred. Use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 5th edition, as your reference source. APA information may also be found online at (OWL: Purdue University Online Writing Lab.) http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/research/r_apa.html#Your%20Reference%20List
