APA does not require a Table of Contents, but your instructor may specifically ask for you to include one in your assignment.  If so, view the document below for help.

A table of contents is like a roadmap of your paper.  It should contain all the headings in the body, worded exactly as they appear within.  Be sure to include appendices.  The left and right hand sides should line up uniformly. 

To help meet "APA style" requirements, simply use APA's formatting: 1 inch margins, 12pt Times New Roman font, and standard double spacing.
