    My understanding is that the Healthy People assignment, you are preparing for the big teaching paper later on in the course, and apparently they want us to research a bit on our topic for that paper now, and provide the references now that will be using then. That's my understanding.
    I asked on the Q&A board, because I don't understand this. What are we supposed to be referencing, like articles on what? There is nothing in the instructions indicating what to reference.

    This is how I took it: I picked out the topic for the teaching plan, then I looked up articles that I was going to be using to developing the teaching plan later on in the course. From that list I put down in the assignment this week.

    What are we supposed to reference for the assessment? My TA said in text citations for Healthy People. But according to her the instructions say that and the don't.
    I have no idea. I'm finished with my assessment but was reading over the directions one more time. Says to include reference page at end of the paper. Now I'm confused.

    I referenced our text for the assessment paper. That is where i found the material to do the assessment. However I did not quote anything... just left a reference haha.

    I'm working on my healthy people 2020 paper now... Someone left a question to the TA asking if we need an abstract. The TA responded with "Whenever APA format is required, if the instructions do not say "no abstract needed", then you should include an abstract. Thanks for checking!" I've never included an abstract... this class is BS!

    How long did everyone make their paper?

    If there is an abstract, then I'm screwed. I didn't do one. I thought I read no abstract needed. Maybe that was a different assignment. Well, my computer messed up this morning. When I submitted my paper, I checked to be sure it went through, and I saw that somehow my running head was missing. When I went back to my file and checked, it was there. I've emailed the TA to ask if I can do a resend, No answer yet, wish me luck. Other wise I'm sure it's a big deduction.

    Check the APA book about personal interview... I used that in my culture and diversity class.

    It's not clear, but I think DidiRN is right on.

    It would be like referring to a dictionary or the bible...no need to reference it.

    Hope this explains.
    You know, in other papers, I did cite a dictionary. And no mention from that TA that I shouldn't. One time I wrote in a paper something like... there is a common saying that says blah, blah ,blah... and my TA took off because I didn't cite the common saying. It was something I grew up hearing, I couldn't have found a reference for it if my life depended on it.
    I think the TA's need a play book and need to apply things uniformly.

    This was the response I got about APA formatting for the assessment assignment, and using references. Didn't answer my question at all. I asked what we were supposed to reference, as we are not using any articles. My point is, I didn't use any references. I guess I will just reference the book with no in text citations. Did anyone else use citations somehow? Why is it so hard to just give a clear answer?

    my advice to you would be to follow the example of the health assessment found in week one's assignment directions. Regarding the references...you should cite and list any references that you used for this assignment. Your textbook should be included as a reference
