For this second building block toward your final research paper, you should prepare an outline and provide
sources which will be used in your final paper. The outline and sources should be in APA format. Please
review the Outlines tutorial.
The outline should include the following elements:
major points that support a thesis, and
supporting points for major points.
The sources should be related to your topic and provided in APA format on the reference page. At least
three academic sources must be used, two of which must come from the CSU Online Library. All articles
must be peer-reviewed and be published within the past 5 years in a journal.
Please note that you may use more than three references in your paper; however, three are stipulated here
to assist you in developing the outline, main points, and supporting points. Additionally, you are not
required to use the references identified in this assignment on your final paper as you may have located
more appropriate sources.
Your final paper for this block should be at least three pages in length including the references page. A title
page, abstract, and running head are not required for this assignment.
