    1. Review guidelines for formatting tables and figures within the text. Use these online resources to help you format your table or figure correctly. I will also make a brief video taking you through the websites that you can find on the Video Lessons channel of Teams.

    This first link will take you to the APA's online guide for creating and using a table. At the end of the page, there is a link to take you to sample tables. If you are taking a table from another source rather than creating your own (which I assume we are!), then you will also want to look through figures information because it provides clearer information on how to note the source of your table. This is covered in the video.

    This link will take you to the APA's online guide for using a figure, which is any other image aside from a table. At the end of the page, there is a link to take you to sample figures where you can see clearly how to include the source information in the figure's or table's note.

    Figures in APA

    If you have found your figure or table on the internet outside of any other sources you are using, then you will need to include a reference entry on your references page just for the figure or table. If this table or figure is a part of a source you use otherwise, you would not need another entry on the references page.

    Here is a link to APA's short guide to making reference page entries. It is important to note that APA does not care much about WHERE you found the source. A book is a book, whether you read it online or in the paper edition. So start with what you have -- a photograph, a book, a journal article, an interview, a speech -- and go from there. This is APA 7, so there are some changes to references format. I will accept 6th or 7th edition formatting.

    2. Placing your table or figure into your online Word doc can be a challenge. I made a video about how to do this, which you can find on the Video Lessons channel of our Teams page. This is the first video lesson I made, and I learned a lot about how to do a better job in the process. Please overlook those rough spots!

    1. Complete peer review activities with rough drafts. This peer review will be graded on-your-honor. I will assume that you have completed this step. Don't forget to submit your paper to the Turnitin drop box to take advantage of the plagiarism check. You can adjust the settings on the filter to filter out quotations and bibliographic material. Adjusting the filter will help you hone in on problem areas.
