Week 11: Writing Tips & APA Style

On Wednesday, the UNT Writing Lab stopped by our #ugstJOUR class to talk about their resources and how they can help you improve/enhance your writing. They handed out some APA Citation information, and you are all strongly encouraged to use their tutoring sessions, both online and in person, to help review your final career/research paper (worth 25% of your final grade). Bring at least an outline and/or a few pages (4-10) to your session to get feedback on your writing or discus your paper with a Writing Lab tutor. For more information check out them out in person (AUDB 105) or online: http://www.unt.edu/writinglab/

Here are a few other helpful tips and online resources for you to use in writing and drafting your paper:
