content, and a conclusion paragraph that summarizes the key points of the paper.
1. Length: 4-5 single spaced pages (Times New Roman/Arial/Calibri 10-12 point font, .75 – 1 inch top & bottom margins) with a
carriage return between each paragraph and appropriate spacing between sections – be sure to format professionally.
