  2. Save that article to your hard drive as a PDF file.
  3. Summarize (use your own words – no direct quotes allowed) one section of the article using APA 6thedition formatting for all citations (85 points). Let us know what section you are paraphrasing (i.e., discussion, methods, literature review, findings, etc.) (5 points).
