Use the SAGE database to find definitions for your keywords in your topic/research question. I will review this in class with you.

After you have located information in the online reference databases, try your hand at writing the definition section rough draft. Not only are there 2 definition section examples attached, but you can also use the definition sections in the 4 sample research papers in the Research Paper folder for more guidance.
In your rough draft, I am expecting you to include embedded citations in APA style AND the full citation(s) (at the end of the text) for your sources. I discourage the use of direct quotations unless you simply cannot paraphrase. However, when you do paraphrase, you must cite the source where you got the information at the end of the sentence WITHIN the period (the ending period for the sentence comes after the closing parenthesis for the citation)
