After writing your Article Review, combine your review with the ideas/concepts presented from the textbook. Make sure to

provide at least 3 pages (750 to 1,000 words) using APA style. You must also include a reference page at the end of your

summary. You have seven weeks to complete this assignment, with a due date at the end of Week Seven. No late papers

will be graded. Therefore, make sure to submit before Midnight, Tuesday- Week Seven. Any paper submitted after that

time will be awarded a zero score, regardless of reason.

Suggestions:

1. Do not limit yourself only to the material from the textbook. You may want to include references from the Internet,

or additional library research, etc. However, you must (at least) include detail from our textbook.

2. Start early. You may work on the paper immediately, up to the end of Week Seven. Remember that any late

paper will receive a zero score. You may submit your assignment when completed (Week One through

Week Seven).

3. Proofread your work. A spelling and grammar check does not always find improper word usage. For example; to,

too, and two would all be okay—but they have different meanings. Also, don’t forget to check spelling and

grammar…! PS – If possible, please check the document until it removes all red, green, or blue underline

squiggles. Those highlights make it difficult during the grading process.

4. This paper represents 12% of your course grade. Therefore, if you need writing assistance, seek out the services

of the Student Success Center. They have tutors who would be happy to review your work before you submit for a

final grade. Make sure to leave enough time for their review and your revisions (if necessary).

5. Apply real-world content to your review. You may want to highlight current events, etc., to show the relevance in

today’s economic environment.

6. Do not rush this assignment. The article review represents a significant portion of your grade, and allows you to

show off your scholarly talents. Research and writing skills are very important to employers, along with being a

helpful exercise for personal growth.
