APA Format Exercise

Resource Title:  APA Format Exercise

Brief Description of Resource:  Students fill in the required information for citing reference books, magazine articles, and websites in pairs. Then they use the format examples on the back to create their own citation. Finally, the librarian has students read out the citation for the article while s/he types what they say into a Word document which is being projected to the whole class. They make all the necessary corrections, and then they compare it to the citation as provided by a database like ProQuest or Academic Search Complete. This helps students see that there are sometimes mistakes in the database citations, so they know better how to correct those citations in the future
