Workshop 07: APA Formatting -The 1st Draft

Summary: We worked on specific academic writing issues related to your synthesized notes to help you write your first draft. The students that took AEW1 that wrote APA formatted essays and are familiar with the writing process spoke with their pairs in a discussion format and shared their research. Students completely new to academic writing in English got more instructions and support.
