Response papers do not require you to do any further outside research or reading other than what is presented in the course materials, but you must demonstrate throughout your paper that you have an understanding of the basic concepts presented in the units covered. Include a References section at the end containing any references you have cited from the course materials using APA style.
Tip: List the units of the Study Guide this way:
Athabasca University. (2017a). Unit 1 — Introduction to Indigenous Education. In Indigenous Studies 301 Study Guide. Retrieved from http://cwikr.lms.athabascau.ca/
Cite it as (Athabasca University, 2017a). Since you will be citing more than one AU study guide unit, all published in 2017, you will need to list them as 2017a, 2017b, and so on.
You may include Indigenous cultural information if you have such knowledge or has access to such knowledge.
