Why do you have to do this? Because learning scholarly writing means mastering an accepted and uniform writing style. Because APA style is the most common writing style in the field of communication (and in the social sciences). Because your final research paper and most papers in your communication courses must be formatted in APA style. Because using it allows me to concentrate on content rather than minor errors when grading (though you will be graded on APA style!).
