You will benefit most from attending the graded Seminar as an active participant. However, if you are unable to attend you have the opportunity to make up the points by summarizing the archived Seminar. Your paper should be written in appropriate APA style for a written summary. In other words, you are not required to use direct quotes, cite references, include an abstract, or include a reference page. You do, however, have to write in complete sentences and paragraphs, provide a title page, and include a professional presentation. Listen to the archived Seminar to provide a summary and respond to the Seminar questions. Submit your summary to the Seminar Dropbox before the end of the unit to receive credit.
