A course reader is usually a collection of prescribed articles, book chapters or a workbook that supports a unit of study. This is usually a compilation of  readings. It is important to note in the first instance,  that you must cite the specific article or chapter used in the course reader as part of the full referencing of the reader itself.  

To cite an article or book chapter from a course reader in APA 7,   please see example below, as you must identify the original source of the reading when citing an article from a course reader.
