This week, I am teaching my students how to use the APA format for citation and reference. Now, this is not the most interesting of subjects (and it spans 2 lessons!) but I must say I was surprised that I had great fun with my classes today as we went through ITC (that’s In-Text Citations) and its many variations such as Standard, Split and Block. And not to mention the different exceptions — so-called ‘special cases’ — like for example how to cite when there is more than 1 authour, if there are 3-5 authors or if there are 6 or more authors. (trust me, they are all different) And what about websites? No authors, no dates, no nothing? As one of my students innocently asked, “Then how?” If anyone is interested, let me know and I can give you a crash course on the use of parentheses and ampersands too.
