In general, when one researches what helps students learn APA format, the sources usually suggest a lot of practice. You will be expected to put your main Discussion responses and Assignments in APA format in all of your graduate courses, so you will, indeed, get this practice. Peer reviews are also noted as one way to effectively receive feedback.
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review the feedback that you provided and received for this week’s Discussion 1 exercise.
- Reflect on the process of receiving, as well as providing, constructive feedback.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 an explanation of the process that you followed in order to provide feedback to your partner. What did you learn about APA format or the Publication Manual as a result of this exercise? Do you feel the references that were cited were scholarly sources of information for the paper? Why or why not? What did you learn from the feedback that you received that will improve your APA-format writing style?
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
Respond by Day 6 to at least two colleagues by providing an example or personal experience that illustrates one of the points made by your colleagues.
