This workshop covers APA in-text citations. Using this tutorial, you will learn about using the format guide for academic work issued by the American Psychological Association (APA). While not comprehensive, the tutorial does address common concerns students have and common mistakes students make for in-text citations. It is a must see for students writing in the social sciences where APA is most commonly used.
Does your class require the use of MLA formatting for writing assignments? This tutorial will explain how to format in-text citations using the Modern Language Association (MLA) style guide. This tutorial addresses common student concerns and mistakes. This workshop will be most helpful for students writing in the liberal arts and humanities (where MLA is most commonly used).
Are you an ESL student? This workshop is designed for students whose first language is not English. This tutorial focuses on the use of articles and prepositions in the English Language. Due to the broad nature of this topic, the workshop covers the articles a/an, the, and some and a selection of prepositions: on, in, and at. The outline provides the content of the tutorial in a written form for easy viewing. The focus of the handout focuses on the use of articles and prepositions in the English Language. PEGS highly recommends this workshop for ESL students whose first language does not make use of articles, or for ESL students who simply want a better command of articles and prepositions to improve their writing or teaching abilities.
