For this third phase of your essay project, you will begin writing. You must create a three- to five-page page rough draft of your final essay paper. Using your peer-reviewed articles and the instructions for the scenario, begin to fill in the outline you created in Unit IV. Your draft paper must be at least three- to five-pages pages in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced. Paraphrased and/or quoted materials must have accompanying citations in APA style. Note: Your final essay paper will be 10 pages in length. You must incorporate any feedback provided by your professor. If you do not write a full five-page draft, you will have to integrate the remaining pages into the final essay paper. For example, if your draft is three pages in length, you will need to include an additional seven pages to complete the final essay.
