APA Assignment (Original: Scott Bates)

This assignment is taken directly from my syllabus for the Orientation to the Major course that I offer at Utah State University (though it is likely influenced by the assignments of others--I don't consider this an original work!). It includes three parts and is designed to (a) increase students' familiarity with the APA manual, and (b) get students thinking and writing about the reason that APA style exists.
