Title in Upper and Lower Case (Centered, Bold, Matches Title Page)

Type your introduction here (and remove these instructions). Although the first paragraph after the paper title is the introduction, no heading labeled “Introduction” is used. The best practice for a concise introduction is to (a) introduce the paper’s topic and establish its importance, (b) express a clear purpose statement for the paper (usually one that mirrors the assignment purpose), and (c) provide a mini-outline of the paper’s content in sentence format (often reflecting the Level 1 headings). See the American Psychological Association’s (APA, 2020) Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition) for further guidance in standard English writing style and formatting a professional paper.

Overview of the Manager Role

Refer to your assignment guidelines for the lever headings to be used for the body of the paper. Begin to type the body of your paper here. Use as many paragraphs as needed to cover the content appropriately. Often the content can be guided by the assignment’s grading rubric and the assignment guidelines. The best practice for constructing a paragraph is to build each one using the MEAL Plan format. The four components of the MEAL Plan paragraph are (a)
ain idea (only one per paragraph), (b)
vidence (scholarly reference citation, experience, etc.), (c)
nalysis (discussion or explanation of the main idea and the evidence), and (d)
ink (connect to the main idea, the paper’s topic, or the next paragraph’s content). Note that the
ink component may not always be needed or used.

Impact of Health Policy on Manager’s Role

When required by the paper’s content or the assignment guidelines, use a level 2 heading to organize the ideas or material within the level 1 heading’s section. Each paragraph within the section should conform to the MEAL Plan format.

Analysis of the Interview

If there is one level 2 heading, there should be, at least, a second level 2 heading and subdivision. Each section of the paper should include at least one paragraph, and each paragraph should have more than one sentence at the minimum.


Papers should end with a conclusion or summary. The assignment directions will specify which is required; if not specified, use the heading, “Conclusion.” The conclusion should be concise and contain no new information or details. The best conclusions will recap the paper’s purpose, reflecting the purpose statement in the introduction. Conclusions will also remind the reader of the paper’s organization (or mini-outline from the introduction). Typically, it will draw major conclusions from the body of your paper and summarize the importance of the topic.
No matter how much space remains on the page, the references always start on a separate p
