• 1: Create a Research Paper about Word Using the MLA Documentation Style
Chapter 1 of this topic discussed the components of the Word window (pages WD 6 through 11).
Using the material presented on those pages, write a short research paper (350–400 words) that
describes the purpose and functionality of one or more of these components: document window,
Ribbon, Mini toolbar and shortcut menus, Quick Access Toolbar, and Offi ce Button. Use your
textbook and Word Help as sources. Include at least two citations and one explanatory note positioned
as a footnote. Add an AutoCorrect entry to correct a word you commonly mistype. Use the concepts
and techniques presented in this chapter to format the paper according to the MLA documentation
style. Check spelling and grammar of the fi nished paper.
•• 2: Create the Research Paper Presented in this Chapter Using the APA
Documentation Style
As discussed in this chapter, two popular documentation styles for research papers are the Modern
Language Association of America (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) styles. In this
chapter, you created a research paper that followed guidelines of the MLA documentation style. Using
the school library, this textbook, other textbooks, the Internet, magazines, or other sources, research the
guidelines of the APA documentation style. Then, prepare the Wireless Communications Paper from this
chapter following the guidelines of the APA documentation style. Use Figure 2–1 on page WD 75 as a
starting point for the text and source information. Check spelling and grammar of the fi nished paper.
•• 3: Create a Research Paper that Compares Documentation Styles
This chapter discussed the requirements of the MLA documentation style. The American
Psychological Association (APA) and the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) are two other documentation
styles supported by Word. Using the school library, this textbook, other textbooks, the Internet,
magazines, or other sources, research the guidelines of the APA and CMS documentation styles to
learn more about the differences among the MLA, APA, and CMS documentation styles. Using what
you learn, write a short research paper (450-500 words) that compares the requirements and formats of
the three documentation styles. Include at least two references and one explanatory note positioned as a
footnote. Use the documentation style specifi ed by your instructor to format the paper. Check spelling
and grammar of the fi nished paper.
•• 4: Create a Research Paper about the Month You Were Born
Make It Personal
Did you ever wonder what world events took place during the month you were born (besides your
birth)? For example, what happened with respect to politics, world affairs, and the economy? What
made headline news? Were there any scientifi c breakthroughs? What was on television and at the box
offi ce? Were any famous people born? Did anyone famous die? What songs topped the charts? What
was happening in the world of sports? Research the newsworthy events that took place during the
month and year you were born (i.e., July 1981) by looking through newspapers, magazines, searching
the Web, and/or interviewing family and friends. Write a short research paper (450-500 words)
that summarizes your fi ndings. Include at least two references and one explanatory note. Use the
documentation style specifi ed by your instructor to format the paper. Check spelling and grammar of
the fi nished paper.
