Set your students up for success this semester by attending a new APA Style webinar: “A Step-by-Step Guide for APA Style Student Papers.” The webinar will take place on September 10, 2020, and will provide detailed guidance on creating, formatting, and organizing APA Style student papers.

The session will begin with an overview of how to set up student papers (typeface, line spacing, margins, page numbers, etc.), with an emphasis on how the default settings of word-processing software align with seventh edition style and make it easier for all writers to format their papers.

The APA Style experts will next focus on the sections included in all student papers: title page, text, and reference list, with a brief discussion of tables and figures as well. They will walk through the elements needed for each section and then systematically address any needs for different typeface, line spacing, and alignment within those sections—for example, how those factors affect the format of headings, section labels, block quotations, and table and figure labels. The session will conclude with final steps for organizing papers and strengthening their overall quality and presentation.
