Hi Tim, I'm getting mixed messages from my faculty advisor regarding if I should double-space a quotation that has 40 words or more. I'm assuming the discrepancy is based on how the APA manual depicts an example of a long quote in single-space format. However, the text states that the entire quote should be double-spaced-- what are your thoughts?

Hi Timothy, my faculty advisor stated that when using a direct quotation there should not be another set of quotation marks utilized in the quote. For example: Karns (2005) added that “real-world learning activities inherently involve more complexity, ambiguity, and “big-picture” orientation and thus may require great deftness on the part of the instructor to achieve the learning results desired” (p. 170). However, I'm confused on how to be precise according to the APA format. What do you recommend?
