Save yourself some red ink. With this resource, teachers can lead a class of students through the basics of APA in-text citation and have students directly engage with the concepts in less than an hour – without requiring students to write essays first and thus to learn about in-text citations through revision and red marks on their papers.
Beginning with an overview of the essential parts of sentences using APA in-text citations (signal phrase, cited material and reference information), the resource goes on to list the most prominent rules, conventions and issues encountered by students learning APA style then offers two classroom exercises to reinforce the concepts presented.
This classroom resource can be used…
…as an introduction to APA in-text citations,
…as a review of the grammar, style and function of the APA style of incorporating cited material into academic writing,
…as a graded classroom activity,
…as a handout for students struggling with APA style,
…as a reference guide to APA in-text citations,
…or as college prep/early college tutoring materials.
