This is the second installment of your four-part project. Again, you will produce a reflective essay that contains five components. Please ensure you employ proper headings for each of the five components and utilize proper APA citations and references throughout. This activity aligns with module outcome 4.

From chapters 4 & 5, employ the specific lessons outlined in your reading:

This course uses the American Psychological Association (APA) format for scholarly writing.  References and citations must adhere to the proper format for all written work presented including essays, discussion postings, and essay exams. Online tips for using APA style may be found at the Excelsior College OWL (Links to an external site.).  Your research should be documented by citing one or more credible sources such as the textbook, a newspaper, a biographic article, book, or website. Wikipedia and any similar online reference sites where the content may be authored by anyone are not considered credible sources for scholarly writing.
