Plagiarism and APA Review Assignment

Assignment Description
The correct application of APA writing and referencing style is a requirement for many assignments that students must complete in college programs. This Plagiarism and APA Review Assignment is intended to review 3 basic types of source text use (quotation, paraphrase and summary) along with the specific documentation formats for in-text and References page (bibliographical) citations; signal phrases and their use in quote integration are also included.

You will identify and create examples of correctly quoted, paraphrased and summarized material that are all accurately documented in APA documentation style (including a References Page).
