Hi y'all! Today, we're going to be talking about APA formatting!
So, the other day, I was looking for a resource to help me with my big question. Well, I found out that APA formatting is basically the 4 W's!
What if there are a lot of authors? Just ditch the first name initials and write the last names! (Rowling, Tiffany, Thorne) It looks nicer, doesn't it?
What if there's no date? Well, according to the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL), just use N.D. for No Date.
If you can't find the article's author, use the title, or the URL code. Congratulations! You survived that large article! That does it! Now, if you don't mind, I've got to run. Breakfast is calling!
Hi! Today, we're going to be talking about testable questions, so let's get started!
A TESTABLE QUESTION is, obviously, a question that can be tested. Now this specific kind of question is sort of like MCU's (Marvel Cinematic Universe's) Soul Stone. Although it doesn't need you to throw someone you love off a cliff on Vormir, it does need you to be accurate. For one thing, it doesn't like the word "why" sitting at the beginning of it's beautiful sentence. It likes "how" "does" and "what if". For another, you must have both the time AND resources to figure out your big question. Let's say Dr. Steven Strange can't help but try to figure out if the amount of time he practices his spells determines if he can proceed to the Ancient One's level. He has the Time Stone, so he probably has enough time, and he has the resources (his magic and his textbooks), so, by all means, try it! Again, IT NEEDS TO BE TESTABLE!!!!!!!! Since this process will take time (not a problem for Dr. Strange) make sure it is interesting to YOU as an individual. Having a "boring" subject can lead to negative thoughts, like, "Uggh! Another essay!" or "I'll NEVER get this done!". You need to have a positive, I-can-do-this, attitude. Now even if you have a great attitude towards it, but it is filled with information that is opinionated or biased is not a good, reliable report. You need facts, the whole facts, and nothing but the facts. Those will make your good old factual report a success. Now, you're probably not like Tony Stark, where you have unlimited access to the greatest labs in the world, but you have a pretty great lab here at Niles North high School. But make sure our lab can fulfill YOUR needs. And most of all, HAVE FUN!!!!! That just about wraps it up. Thank you!
