Activity: APA Research Reports,What Goes Where?

This activity asks students to reconstruct an APA style research report by logically organizing individual paragraphs from a published research article.

This activity takes a “jigsaw puzzle” approach to teaching students the underlying structure and logic of an APA style research report. Students are provided the following paragraphs from a published research article on individual slips of paper. The slips should be re-ordered according to the alphabet label at the top of each paragraph/slip of paper. Students are tasked with re-creating the original APA style paper by reordering the slips, providing the appropriate APA headings (e.g., abstract, introduction, method, results, discussion).
