Effect essay

What we did in class, today – Students revised their effect essay and submitted the first draft and second draft on their flash memories to me before the end of class.

We discussed in-text citations and citations on the reference page, as well as formatting the paper for APA style.

In-text citations: Here is a quick review of how to cite your sources in the paper itself.

Author(s) + (date) + write(s) + that + thesis of the article. Claire Andre and Manuel Velasquez (1988) write that the urgent need for organ donors has created a debate focusing on how to meet this need.

  • If there is no date for the article, use n.d. in place of the date. Claire Andre and Manuel Velasquez (n.d.) write that the urgent need for organ donors has created a debate focusing on how to meet this need.
  • If there is no author, write thesis of the article (“title of article,” date). The urgent need for organ donors has created a debate about how to meet this need (“Kidneys for Sale, 1988).
  • If no author or date is listed, write thesis of the article + (“title of article,” n.d.). The urgent need for organ donors has lead to a debate about how to meet this need (“Kidneys for Sale,” n.d.).
