Please realize your draft should not be your first version of the essay. It should be edited and proofread to the best of your ability; this includes a spell check. Additionally, your sources should be correctly cited using APA style and you should include a working list of References. (By “working” list of References, I mean that it’s understood that sources will be added to and removed from your References list as you complete your paper.)
