Imagine you are an instructor who has to present APA guidelines to your class.
Create a 8-slide PowerPoint that covers some of the
APA guidelines according to your reading and the current version of the
APA manual as follows (assumption is you are using Microsoft Word):
(First slide is your presentation title) (Use images and colors to enhance your work) (links to "how-to" videos OK as well)
(Bullet points work best inside the slide --- word-for-word comments go in the "note" section below the slide if needed.)
Tell how each item is done with EXAMPLES...
CONTENT of PowerPoint:
1 - Parts of a title page (including their location on the page)
2 - Difference between "common knowledge" and when information must be cited in the body of your work (in-text citations).
3 - How to create in-text citations for a website & and how to
list the website in your "Reference" section (include what to do if
there's no I\identifiable author for the website as welll)
4 - How to create in-text citations for professional journal articles - showcase how this is different from citing a book
5 - How to reference (at the end of your work) a book vs. a professional journal article
6 - How to use the "hanging indent" for your list of references. How is the spacing structured for a "Reference" page?
7 - How to locate the APA section in the UOP library and showcase one
additional tool for helping students with APA style found in that
section of the library (such as RiverPoint Writer).
