This accessible and invaluable workbook-style reference guide will help your students smoothly make the transition from writing for composition classes to writing for psychology classes. In WRITING WITH STYLE, Sixth Edition, author Lenore T. Szuchman quickly and succinctly provides the basics of style presented by the Sixth Edition of the APA's PUBLICATION MANUAL. Dr. Szuchman's years of experience teaching writing-intensive courses give her an inside track on the trouble spots students often encounter when writing papers and dealing with APA style. With this book, she helps your students avoid common errors and use the APA style with confidence.
- Interactive exercises that were interspersed throughout the text in the previous edition now appear in an "Exercises" section. This consolidation, combined with a format that allows the section to be detached from the text, simplifies grading.
- A sample manuscript in the appendix reports a fictional study about superheroes, color preference, and moral orientation. It contains examples of many of the APA rules specified in the text, providing students with a convenient "go-to" source to complete the exercises.
- Electronic referencing rules are included in Chapter 8, "Preparing the References Section."
- All chapters reference the Sixth Edition of the APA Publication Manual.
- Many exercises contain a suggested article source that is likely to be available online through most college and university libraries. Exercises reference a variety of journal types, especially some that students might not otherwise come across (e.g., Psychology, Public Policy, and Law; Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy; Psychology and Aging; Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts; Families, Systems, and Health; Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology).
- Handy lists of rules are available on the inside covers.
- The text's unique workbook format offers students both a quick reference to APA style and a place for them to practice what they've learned.
- Interactive exercises allow students to work with actual articles and, in the process, begin to see commonalities that ease them into emulating the required style and language suggested in the Publication Manual of the APA.
- The author pinpoints the typical kinds of errors that students make, followed by suggested alternatives.
- Chapter 5, "Preparing the Results Section," includes guidance on reporting effect size, confidence intervals, and manipulation checks.
