MLA, APA, Chicago, AP Style...My Poor English Brain!
I think Dr. Jerz did a good job explaining these tips during class. This is also something I will print out and keep with me.
Most of the tips I had heard or was aware of like the standard date and the abbreviations of the lengthier months. I knew the acronym rule and that applies to writing across the board. I also knew the "capitalize only proper nouns" rule as well as the "no conclusion" rule. However, I find it incredibly difficult not to have a conclusion-I'm too "English-lit" for that!
I did not know that "Dr." wasn't used when talking about professors in an article. Personally I think it's mean since they worked long and hard to earn that title, but newspaper writing is unlike any other writing. And now I have to have an MLA brain and an Associated Press Style brain!
