How do I format lists in APA?
Formatting lists in APA is dependent upon the content of the lists. For content that communicate hierarchical order or chronology, use numbered seriation. For content that does not, use bullet points. Numbered Seriation: 1. Click on the link on the right hand side of the page. 2. Type your search within the search box that appears. 3. Press submit. Bullet points: - Your; you're - Loose, lose - Its; It's

I am taking four classes that assign at least an hour of homework a night. Not all the assignments are due the next day, but I'm having trouble completing assignments on time. How do I manage this workload?
Time management is crucial when preparing for a week's worth of assignments and projects. Using a planner, outline your week with the following information: 1. The day the assignment/project was assigned by the teacher/professor. 2. The due date for each assignment. 3. The steps needed to complete each assignment. 4. The amount of time needed to complete each assignment. Seeing all this information outlined will give you an idea of how to map out your week. This is also helpful when planning trips to the library to gather research, completing outlines for papers, the writing and editing process, and scheduling meet ups for group assignments. If book reading is required for an assignment or exam, understanding how many pages you can read within an hour is beneficial in determining how long it will take to complete the book in its entirety.

How may I locate scholarly, peer-reviewed articles about teacher burnout within elementary schools?
The library's A-Z databases are a great source for finding scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. One database that may prove especially helpful is PsycInfo, an EBSCOhost database. I like to start with a broad search that encompasses as much information as possible and then narrow down. I do this so that I'm not missing out any resources that may pertain to my research. Narrow searches can remove helpful articles from the result list. My first method of creating a search is brainstorming keywords derived from my question. Since we're looking for scholarly, peer-reviewed articles about a teacher burnout within elementary schools, I'm going to initially focused on the keywords, "teacher burnout," "teacher stress," "elementary schools," "primary school," teachers, "job stress," and workload. These keywords will help me narrow down or broaden my result findings. To start, I'll create my first search phrase. Because I want to keep my search broad, I'm going to type in, "teacher burnout," in my search fields. I'm putting my keywords in quotations because I want the database to search the keywords as an exact phrase. I also want to select the option to search for "Scholarly/Peer Reviewed Journals" only. From there, I can narrow down my search to "elementary school" or "primary school" so that my demographic meets my research question criteria. Another way to search is by subject heading. Going into PsycInfo's thesaurus will give us a list of subject headings, or categories the database uses to organize and label articles. This will help us find articles that are ABOUT "teacher burnout" or "teacher stress." We can also limit our to scholarly/peer reviewed journals by selecting this filter.
