In general, when one researches what helps students learn APA format, the sources usually suggest a lot of practice. You will be expected to put your main Discussion responses and Assignments in APA format in all of your graduate courses, so you will, indeed, get this practice. Peer reviews are also noted as one way to effectively receive feedback.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the feedback that you provided and received for this week’s Discussion 1 exercise.
  • Reflect on the process of receiving, as well as providing, constructive feedback.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 an explanation of the process that you followed in order to provide feedback to your partner. What did you learn about APA format or the Publication Manual as a result of this exercise? Do you feel the references that were cited were scholarly sources of information for the paper? Why or why not? What did you learn from the feedback that you received that will improve your APA-format writing style?

Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.

Several key individuals and ideas shape the philosophy of social change. The first of these is Mahatma Gandhi.  According to Kapadia (1995), Gandhi believed that ideas and ideals had no value if they were not translated into action.  Gandhi talked frequently about social change and service to others exclaiming that “the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”  (“Thinkexist”, n.d). Implementing positive social change can be a difficult process. Gandhi was asked why people should not just achieve their goals by any means necessary. He believed that the means are connected to the end, stating “every problem lends itself to solution if we are determined to make the law of truth and nonviolence the law of life” (Gandhi, 1961). Gandhi influenced many important social change movements and leaders. Some leaders who have acknowledged his influence are Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, Aung San Suu Kyi and Rigoberta Menchu (Pal, 2008).

Revised Paragraph:

 In our country, Dr. King embraced the tenets of non-violence in his leadership within the civil rights movement and enduring philosophy for bringing about social change. He wrote about those who inspired his philosophy of nonviolent social change and Gandhi was a significant influence. According to Pal (2008), King took a month-long trip to India in 1959 in order to visit the country of his inspiration. The King Center is dedicated to preserving his legacy and provide ongoing support for social change; based on Dr. King’s teachings, The King Center published, Six Steps of Nonviolent Social Change (The King Center). These six steps are: information gathering, education, personal commitment, negotiation, direct action, and reconciliation (King Center).
