Do your districts high schools teach APA and or MLA?

Posted by   + Show Post
I went into university having no idea how to write a paper becase my district decided to start teaching APA and MLA the year after (I graduated in 2010) luckily the teachers were understanding (only two people even knew what they were)
I didn't even know such things existed lol

When I was in high school and when I started college I was taught MLA. It wasn't until later that I had to learn APA.

I have no idea why high schools would use MLA. Every class I've taken both in college and in grad school were APA. Not sure why high school wouldn't prepare you for what you have to do in college. My high school used MLA too.

I'm not sure if they do or don't. But I had my son write the only report he's ever written in APA. He's only in third grade.

MLA.

But some of the social studies classes learn APA.

My son takes AP (college-level high school classes) classes and in his AP Literature class they use MLA. In his AP Environmental, they use APA. He just finished a 6 page research paper for AP Environmental in APA format. (He has other AP courses, but they don't do research papers.)

I don't remember learning it in high school. I did learn it in college. First English class the teacher taught it.
