For your Written Communication class, you are writing a short research paper. To conform to MLA guidelines, modify the document’s Normal style by changing the font to Times New Roman, the font size to 12 pt., and the line spacing to double with no blank space after paragraphs.
Apply the modified Normal style to the first four paragraphs in the document, from “Desmond Reese” to “6 March 2019”.
Center the title paragraph “Health of Honey Bee Colonies”.
Insert a header as follows:
a. Insert a blank header at the top of the page.
b. Right-align the header paragraph.
c. Type Reese as the header text, insert a space, and then insert a Plain Number page number from the Current Position gallery.
d. Close Header & Footer Tools.
Create a First Line indent of 0.5″ for the body paragraphs beginning with “In the winter of 2006…” and ending with “…for all Americans.”
Change the Citations & Bibliography Style of the document to MLA.
Find the sentence “The scientists studying the problem called it Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).” Move the insertion point before the period and insert a citation to a new source using the information shown in Figure 1 below. (Hint: The Tag name is intentionally blurred because it is generated automatically.)
Figure 1: Web Site Source
Insert a citation to the existing Kaplan source before the period in the last sentence of the third paragraph, “These treatments are now part of regular beekeeping practices.”
In the first sentence of the fourth paragraph, “Proper nutrition and diet…bugs and pesticides.”, use the Thesaurus to replace the word “endure” with a more precise synonym that starts with the letter “w”.
In the next sentence of the fourth paragraph, “Bees need a varied diet…Wellesley College.”, move the insertion point before the period and insert a citation to a new source using the information shown in Figure 2 on the next page. (Hint: The Tag name is intentionally blurred because it is generated automatically.)
Figure 2: Article in a Periodical Source
To provide additional information at the end of the fourth paragraph, move the insertion point immediately after the period in the sentence “…sustain bee colonies.” and insert a footnote with the following text:
Additional protein is also helpful.
Modify the Footnote Text style by changing its font size to 12 pt., the line spacing to double, and the indentation to a 0.5” First line indent.
In the main body of the document, find all instances of the word “bug” and replace it with mite to use the correct term. (Hint: You should find and replace four instances.)
Cut the paragraph “About one-third of what we eat…growers and consumers (Needham).” and then paste it so it becomes the first body paragraph in the document.
In the sixth body paragraph (“As a result of research…attributed to CCD.”), edit the Sullivan citation to add the page number 12.
Modify the “Works Cited” paragraph as follows:
e. With the insertion point immediately before the “Works Cited” paragraph, insert a manual page break.
f. Center the “Works Cited” paragraph on the new page 3.
With the insertion point in the left-aligned blank paragraph at the end of the document, use the Insert Bibliography command to insert a list of sources without a built-in heading.
After reviewing the bibliography, you notice the year is missing from the Kaplan source. Find the Kaplan source and edit it, entering 2019 as the Year.
Update the bibliography field so the Works Cited list reflects the edit you made to the Kaplan citation.
Check the Spelling & Grammar in the document to identify and correct any spelling errors. (Hint: Ignore names. You should find and correct at least one spelling error.)
Your document should look like the Final Figure on the following pages. Save your changes, close the document, and then exit Word. Follow the directions on the SAM website to submit your completed project.
