APA Format in Word - in 4 Minutes

6400 ratings | 805734 views
RECOMMEND USING UPDATED "APA Format in Word - in 4 Minutes V2" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZVIa2sTbpM Format basic APA documents in Word in 4 minutes. Really. This is a visual approach to writing APA in Word. At the end you'll find the steps used, which you can copy or screen print. Created for my college students, but shared in the hope that it helps others. If you have an earlier version of Word, just look for the same keywords, such as "different first page". Other how-to APA topics, such as citations and references, will appear in subsequent videos.

PLEASE BOOKMARK THE UPDATED Version 2 https://youtu.be/qZVIa2sTbpM I'm leaving this version because so many have book marked it, but the V2 has a clarification on the title page.

don't you have to write abstract instead of the title again ?
Colin Murphy, Ed.D. (1 month ago)
An abstract usually does not appear in the shorter written assignments in college, which this 4-minute getting started video targets. Your instructor will indicate if it is expected, and it is a very simple addition. Normally, an abstract is a single paragraph that summarizes the results of the research, tests, tables, findings, etc.

Why do you need a page break when you already have a different running head for the first page?
Colin Murphy, Ed.D. (2 months ago)
The page breaks between title/main body, main body/references, etc. are to ensure the new section starts on the top line. If lines are added or deleted in the prior section, the following text will creep down (or shift up). APA requires that each section start on the first line. This avoids having to add/remove blank lines in prior sections to accomplish the alignment.

what if you have a chrome book?
Colin Murphy, Ed.D. (5 months ago)
In 2017, Microsoft released a version of Office for Chromebooks, available from the Google Play store. Unfortunately, if the Chromebook screen is larger than 10.1" they require you to buy a Office 365 subscription. If your Chromebook is able to run either the free version of Word online, or Google Docs, that may be an option. I'll be adding a new Google Docs video soon.

High school teachers: ONLY USE MLA BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL USE IN COLLEGE Me, in college: Has never used MLA. only APA

Isaac Bridges (8 months ago)
I miss the days of handwritten papers. I grew up with paper and when I was in high school, they shifted to using computers instead. Not only that, but our cheap ass school made us use Microsoft Word 2007, so when I graduated and had to do this crap in college, I was behind about 9 years!
Devin Houston (8 months ago)
Who thumbs down this!!?? Thank you sir this was very informative! This guy took the time to help others and people actually gave a thumbs down! I never comment but had to today!!
Colin Murphy, Ed.D. (8 months ago)
Thank you Devin. Most comments are "how do I?" and "thank you", so I have no idea why someone would watch the video then "thumbs down"... unless they hate APA and take it out on the messenger... ?   Soon I'll have an updated version, beyond the V2 mentioned above, adding a few extra elements. Thank you again for your kind comment. As you point out, all i'm trying to do is help more than just my own students... Colin

Robert Wright only wiseguy can come up with this comment. it is five minutes, but it does not make the video less clear and concise. for you, it was a waste of time to look at this video anyway..

This was one of the most helpful resource for setting up my paper. Most of the courses in my college use MLA, so I've only ever had to write a paper in this format twice.
