We had a wonderful English teacher who taught a research class for
several years.  She always "walked" the students through Turabian (sp?)
as they moaned and groaned all the way.  After strict grading and
thorough discussion of that one, she more or less turned them loose with
APA on the second paper, but she was still there for support and
questions.  The students in her class said they had no problem at college
level and they frequently CLEPped 6 hours of English.

The research class was an "elective" English that substituted for one
semester of Junior English.
