Importance of using online GCU Library resources
Topic 2: DQ 1
The topic resource 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?
Topic 2: DQ 2
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 sentence that supports your essay topic. Format this sentence 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: “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 et al., 2015, p. 325).
Paraphrase: Exercise is beneficial for one’s health regardless of intensity levels (Ross et al., 2015).
