Class Notes: Week #3

*Should always hand in grade ready work!
-Finish assignment a few days before due date giving you time to review it
-When reviewing look at content and formal requirements

APA Style Assignment
-No history
-2-3 features (*Be careful when deciding what main features are! Which features are the most important?/What do you need to know the most?)

Formal Requirements:
-400 words (*401 words is too many!)
-2-4 paragraphs
-12 point font
-Times New Roman
-Double spaced

Peer editing
-Learning your own self editing
-Constructive (Help each other make a better paper)
-Objective neutral when reading paper
-Look and identify what needs work but NEVER write on the text of another student!

Did peer editing in class -> Exchanged with a partner, on the back drew two lines to create four quads

Q1: Grammar and Mechanics
-Spelling, punctuation, run on sentences, etc

Q2: Content and Structure
-Missing info, facts not correct, not right order, conclusion, etc

Q3: Paragraph for Revision
-Which paragraphs need work

Q4: Full Revision
-Does the paper need a full revision? Yes or No

*Conclusion: Should be conclusive, don’t repeat introduction, error if “squashed” because you run out of words


Short Document Style

Upper left:

Same line, on right side of paper:
Pages 3 [Or whatever the total number of pages is]


For: [Profs Name]

Same line, on right side of paper:
Words: [word count]



Enter twice, known as “slug” (Enter)
Main text begins here!

*Title: Centred, don’t change font, size, do nothing to distinguish from the rest of the text

*Indent each new paragraph. Each new paragraph goes on the next line, do not create a slug when new paragraph begins

*Times New Roman, 12pt, double spaced!
