Formatting an Essay in APA Style
When formatting an essay, the header is a very important part, and you must get it right. Make sure the first page of each header has the page number alone. When you move to other pages, then you should add your last name and the page number, and all must be right indented. When starting each paragraph, you should endeavor to leave a half inch space at the beginning. It is easier for you to do this by pressing the tab button whenever you want to start a paragraph. Your title must be aligned to the center of the page and it comes after the heading, and you must insure that the paragraphs that come after the title follow after you must have pressed the enter button twice, so as to give the correct spacing. You must insure that all the texts are aligned to the left once you start a new line.
