It’s important to cite the video per APA guidelines within this paragraph.
Short Title of Second Prompt
After reading the article by Reysen and Katzarska-Miller, you need to write a paragraph of 5 – 7 sentences explaining why there has been a disagreement between theorists about the definition of global citizenship.
