Long sentences composed of uncommon words make for cumbersome reading and often times do not make any sense. Choosing the right words and keeping the prose simple and direct, in general, is the best approach to comprehensible expression.Academic writing is formal; a few common mistakes to avoid are using slang, sentence fragments, colloquialisms, and contractions. Students should become familiar with the American Psychological Association (APA) Publication Manual Sixth Edition. This important reference details the guidance to follow in academic writing at CTU. All written work, including DB posts, should be in proper academic writing form.Additionally, ensure that your writing is structured correctly with complete sentences, paragraphs, and proper grammar and spelling. Remember to keep academic writing formal, avoid over generalizing, making unsupported statements, and using personal language. The primary goal of academic writing is clarity, so as you are starting to write, focus on the message and developing the proper APA writing style.
