Workshop 08 APA Formatting – The 1st Draft Revised

Summary: We worked on specific academic writing issues related to your first draft and how to work with Track Changes. We reviewed your first draft with WAVE. Then, I met with each of you in breakout rooms and gave advice about any formatting or citation issues. Finally, we got back together as a group and I explained the homework.
