What?! A fun APA project? Students love doing this personal experiment and paper. This engaging academic experience allows the students to conduct their own primary research, calls for related secondary research, and culminates in a complete 6-8 page APA essay.
Students perform a personal/social experiment of their choosing for 3 days (giving up social media, breaking a social norm, quitting swearing, going vegan). After taking notes and doing research they create their APA essay.
While learning a bit about themselves as active learners (with voice and choice) they also conquer APA format, conduct personal and secondary research, and share interesting findings with peers in follow-up presentations.
As a supplementary text I include chapters from AJ Jacob's GUINEA PIG DIARIES ("The Unitasker" and "The Rationality Project"). The entire book is super fun read available on Amazon.
Did I mention students love it?
