relevant to the journal prompt

you have witnessed, read about, experienced, or expect to experience


Approach these activities as (a) an opportunity to reflect upon and apply

what you learn each week based on the assigned readings, discussions, and

activities, and (b) an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise

based on your educational and professional experiences in the past. As a

successful professional, you will need good reflective and writing skills.

Journal activities offer you the opportunity to further develop these

skills. Review this tutorial for information on creating a Blackboard

journal entry.


II. Guidelines for Submission: Each entry must be 300 to 500 words with at

least three sources, which must be cited in APA format..

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
