This will become the first page of your assignment. In addition, your assignment header should include your last name, first initial, course code, dash, and assignment number. This should be left justified, with the page number right justified. For example:
Save a copy of your assignments: You may need to re-submit an assignment at your instructor's request. Make sure you save your files in accessible location.Academic integrity: All work submitted in each course must be your own original work. This includes all assignments, exams, term papers, and other projects required by your instructor. Knowingly submitting another person's work as your own, without properly citing the source of the work, is considered plagiarism. This will result in an unsatisfactory grade for the work submitted or for the entire course. It may also result in academic dismissal from the University.

The brain and how it functions is a big piece of the learning puzzle that teachers put together successfully in the classrooms. Individuals are born with all the brain cells they will ever have. They do not get any more and cannot make any more (Morrison, 2013). As important as individual neurons are, it is the connections between the neurons that are important. The brain has the ability of building an unlimited number of neural connections. Neural connections are built, maintained and heightened in environments that are stimulating, thoughtfully, and safely challenging (Bos, 2002). This is the nurture part of the nature vs nurture, which is more important, genetics or environmental influence? In brain development a nurturing environment has a critical importance. Both are important for normal development and the influence they have on children creates each distinct characteristic (Morrison, 2013). Teachers need to be aware of these characteristics and work to make certain that the classroom is physically and emotionally safe. It should be understood that students and teachers will be treated with respect, care and dignity. The classroom should be a place where everyone feels safe, comfortable and happy. Teachers should display sincere caring and concern for the physical and emotional well being of the students.Implications of Brain Research and Brain DevelopmentBabies are born with 100 billion nerve...
