Outline for a paper with three heading levels

Here is my paragraph with Introduction because APA style indicates it is not necessary, since all papers begin with an introduction.Planning My Trip (level 1) (level 3)Maps are good.(level 4) (level 4)Obtaining a Passport (level 3) Need a passport to Canada.(level 4) Turnaround time has been extended.(level 4) Setting Off! (level 1) Saying Goodbye to Friends (level 3) The First Day (level 3)Flat tire.(level 4) (level 4)What I Would Have Done Differently (level 1) (level 3)Look up Relatives Before Setting Off (level 3) (level 3)Paradise, lost is not always a bad thing.(level 3) The waitress.

Finding an antique ink pen.(level 4)unterpart at the same level within a section.This sample paper will not label the levels of headings but you can figure them out.Also, according to the chart, the level one headings would be centered, not italicized, not bold, and use am formatting my level one headinCrime Prevention in Adolescent Youth introduction will be similar to an abstract, which lays out the main points of the paper.If a the subject of crime pryouth, for example, that person may go to a databaseto look at, he or she might read the abstracts.Abstracts tell in a nutshell what the paper will be A reader may look at the that appeal as well.

This section will lay out what crime used to look like and what it looks like now.If I was crime, I might add another level of headings.nd I am sticking to one level.two sentences.

Due to limited space, this sample paper doesnt always follow that guideline.This section will also have at least two paragraphs.

I am only writing one short one here so I can have another example of a new heading and allow room for myFamily Involvement ng, you might find that your curser is indented ou may need to highlight the sentence and Conclusions should not be terribly long.My inclination is to place the word Conclusion should be formatted like other headings of the same level.I hope this handout has been helpful..
