Q. How does the header change from the title page to the body of the paper?


Yes, the header does change.  To see the proper headers, visit the APA help guide to see a Sample Paper and Assignment Template.

Here's how to create the headers in Microsoft Word:

1. Double click at the top of the page to open the header.

2. Click the box for Different First Page so that you can still include the words Running head on the first page, but take them off all subsequent pages.
