Self-Guided and Directed Learning Activities
Over the course of this workshop, you will take concrete steps to start editing your paper.
By following these slides, you’ll:
● identify important aspects of your personal statement (PS) or
statement of purpose (SoP),
● evaluate these aspects,
● and consider how to improve.
Set aside 60 minutes to guide yourself through this workshop.
This directed learning activity guides you through the basics of the American Psychological Association (APA) citation style. APA is very common in social sciences and some humanities. These activities are designed to practice integrating paraphrase, summary, and direct quotes in APA assignments. Download the APA DLA here.
