Step 1. Ensure the final draft, from Week 4, appears in the APA essay template. The template is available from the Writing Center:
Step 2. Verify the final draft is fully developed by using the checklist at https://is.gd/NYZ4R1. Congratulations! You now have nearly finished your essay!
Step 3. Before submitting for grading, you must submit the nearly finished essay to the Writing Center—for review and feedback. Visit the Writing Center and submit the nearly finished essay for review. Also, take a screenshot showing you submitting the nearly finished essay to the Writing Center.
Step 4. Make a new page at the end of the nearly finished essay. Paste the screenshot (from Step 3) into the new page you just made. (If you do not know how to make a new page, then review https://is.gd/UZYeVx to learn how to make new pages in Microsoft Word.) You now have a finished essay!
Further, APA formatting requires the nearly finished essay draft be double-spaced and the first sentence of each paragraph utilizes a half-inch indent. You may learn about indentation in Microsoft Word at https://is.gd/e6B67Y. Moreover, you may learn about double-spacing in Microsoft Word at https://is.gd/crqFWE.
