The topic lecture and readings have reviewed the reasons and importance of using online GCU Library resources in your research. Using examples from the Course Materials, explain why it is important to use scholarly, peer reviewed resources retrieved from the online GCU Library vs. a general Internet search. In those instances where you need to do a search on the Internet, what guidelines should you follow? Why?
Review the reading strategies on pages 70-73 in the textbook. Apply one of the reading strategies towards one of the peer-reviewed articles you chose in the Topic 1 Brainstorming Worksheet. After reading your article, select a passage of at least three to five sentences that supports your essay topic. Format these sentences into a direct quote and include an in-text citation. Then, paraphrase the quote and include an in-text citation. In addition, include a reference citation at the end of your response.
Here is an example of what your response to this DQ should look like:
Topic: Exercise and its effects on obesity
Direct Quote: “Implicit within current guidelines for physical activity and health is the observation that 75 minutes of weekly high-intensity exercise is equivalent to 150 minutes of weekly lower-intensity exercise (3, 4). Therefore, guidelines suggest that there are no added health benefits of high-intensity exercise other than the shorter time frame needed to expend the appropriate amount of energy” (Ross, Hudson, Stotz, & Miu, 2015, p. 325).
Paraphrase: According to research, exercise is beneficial for one’s health regardless of intensity levels (Ross, Hudson, Stotz, & Miu, 2015).
