Include a description of the specific condition chosen, how it is diagnosed, treatments/cures, prognosis, and statistics.Your paper should be written in the THIRD PERSON taking the individual out of the writing and avoiding pronouns such as I, we, my, our (first person) and you, yours, your, us, we (second person). You should deal with facts and not opinions, thus providing citations within your paper and on your reference page. Focus on the subject itself and not on your feelings about the subject. The use of third person retains a formal tone in your writing. The use of first and second person can make a document seem more casual.PLEASE NOTE that you must submit your Extra Credit Assignment as a ?Microsoft Word? document rather than a Word Pad, Works, etc. type of document, otherwise you will not receive credit for your work.Please review the university-wide policy on Plagiarism in your student handbook. All papers will be submitted to a plagiarism detection website so it is imperative that your papers are your original work in your original words. Don?t forget to utilize proper APA style in-text citations for any paraphrasing and/or direct quotes utilized in your papers. Less than 10% of your paper should contain direct quotes and you should refrain from writing in the first or second person in your formal papers. Plagiarism will result in a zero for the entire assignment, as well as a formal letter to the Dean of Academic Affairs who will determine the next course of action, so make sure the work is your own.Here are some additional resources to assist you in the construction of your paper:Research Paper Tips and GuidelinesAPA Papers ?

Subject Knowledge and Content- (65 points possible). Your paper should be pertinent to the subject matter and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the subject with an appropriate introduction, supporting paragraphs, and conclusions. The paper should be at least 500 words (not including cover page, references, etc.). Your paper should be written in your own words using proper in-text citations where indicated. Pleasereview the ?Plagiarism? section located inside the APUS classroom under the ?Syllabus? link for details. You should use a minimum of five current andreliable sources for your research: two of which must be from credible scientific organizations. You can use Internet articles, journals, textbooks, etc. In fact, I strongly recommend that you utilize the APUS Online Library for your research as they offer a plethora of reliable and pertinent research sources. You may access the Online Library by clicking on the ?Library? link on the menu bar inside the electronic classroom. However, you should NEVER use Wikipedia for your research as anyone can alter the information on this site making it a poor source of accurate information.B. Format - (20 points possible). Your paper should utilize APA style format and contain a cover page, page headers, in-text citations, introductory and concluding paragraphs, a main body, and a reference page. References should be cited and properly listed in APA format. Whenever you write a paper based on the research of someone else?s work, you must give credit to the original author. If you do not cite and document your sources carefully, you run the risk of plagiarism. In addition, when you document papers correctly, you provide others with a way to find the sources you have used. I recommend you visit the following web site (The Owl at Purdue) to learn how to properly cite your sources in the APA format: Your paper should be typewritten in double-spaced format using Arial or Times New Roman styles in a 12-point black font. All page margins (left, right, top, and bottom) should be set to 1 inch. See a copy of a sample of an APA formatted paper for reference: Sample APA Style Paper.C.

Submit a high-quality paper, free of spelling and grammatical errors, use your ?Spelling and Grammar Checker? in Word AND proofread your final draft!!!The Extra Credit Assignment is worth up to 2 extra credit points toward the final grade which is based on 100 total possible points.__________________________________________________________________________________Submission Instructions:1.
