Additional rulesAll outlines should be typed. Include a separate reference page using APA style, and cite references in-text. Be consistent in your citations. ANY point that did not come straight out of your own head should be cited. (See the course website for an APA Cheat Sheet to help you cite.) Each point should be a phrase or keyword, except for transitions and quotations which should be full sentences. Please proofread your outline, as points may be deducted for poor grammar, punctuation, spelling, or formatting. Use standard format, and practice good subordination and coordination skills.
