EF_SimoneThreads: 2Posts: 2,079Author: Simone, EssayForum.com [Moderator] Sep 11, 2009, 08:21am #2 APA = American Psychological Association. APA style is a referencing system. While APA style does lay out formatting and organization guidelines for writing reports on scholarly research, there are no guidelines concerning argumentative or any other kind of essay writing. So, I am assuming that you instructor wants you to use APA style for citing your sources in your argumentative essay. Follow your instructor's guidelines for organizing the essay. APA style guidelines are posted all over the internet and probably on the website of your college or university library.
