You can look through your text book for possible topics. Check class website for due dates for the critique. The critique must comply with the following instructions for full credit (50 points). Failure to comply with these instructions will result in zero to only partial credit, so please read the following very carefully. * The critique MUST BE TYPED, and double-spaced. * The critique must be stapled. * You may choose any health related topic for your article. Your source must have an author(s) and may NOT come from a Newspaper, text book, informational pamphlet, or an internet information website.

Must be copied on 8 1/2 by 11" paper. * Must use 12 size font. * The critique must consist of minimum 3 paragraphs (maximum 6).

Include the author(s) name, title of article, and journal name, volume # and page #'s. Example: ....Stress reduction is a vital part of preventative medicine, according to Dr. Jane Dean author of "How to reduce stress" (The American Journal of Nutrition, 2008 v. 72 pp. 67-70). According to Dr. Dean stress is....... Make sure you state a summary IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Do Not Plagiarize. Paragraph 2 - How the Article Relates to you or How you relate to it. Briefly describe how this topic directly relates to you. Do not state "this article doesn't relate to me, but..." Pick a topic that you identify with on a personal level, and make sure you connect to the article by using comparisons or examples between the article (not simply the topic) and your experiences. Example: ....." I use exercise as one of my coping skills for reducing stress in my life. I have followed a program similar to the one presented in this article, and have had similar results to the ones that the author found in her studies….” Paragraph 3 - Conclusion. Briefly conclude your findings and feeling regarding the article. It is highly suggested that you obtain your article from the following list of journals, professional magazines and periodicals. You may also use computer On Line Services if articles originate from professional research institutions, and you obtain instructor approval. It is also highly recommended that you try to use the on campus data bank such as Ebsco or use Library resource data base from home to get full text articles. Do not submit abstracts from data bank sources; they will not be accepted. The article MUST have an author(s), a publication (Not news sources or newspapers), and a publishing date to be acceptable. To use the data bases you can go to the GC Library or access them from home (you will need your Grossmont user-Id and password to access them from home). Go to the Grossmont College website: then click on Library. Click on databases, then data base search. Select CINAHL Plus with Full Text, and Health Source: Consumer Edition and Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition . These should give you a good start for your search. You can also access a list of periodicals when you click onto databases select list periodicals and search individual holdings for articles. Once you select your sources then type a topic into the search box. When you get a results page check the box in the upper right hand side of your page and select “Filter by: Full text”, this will help you narrow searches to only full-text articles. You still have to be careful not to use Newswire articles or Newspaper articles and follow the requirements for a source as listed on page 1 of these instructions. Print out the article and staple it to your critique. If you need help with researching the data bases you can visit the Library and ask for assistance, or take the library tour from their website. HEALTH RELATED PERIODICALS that are acceptable sources American Health American Journal of Public Health Berkeley Wellness Letter (does not usually have listed author, but is an acceptable source) Children Today Health JAMA Journal of Health Education Journal of Nutrition Journal of Physical Education Recreation and Dance Life New England Journal of Medicine Nutrition Reviews Nutrition Today Science Science News Time World Health You can use any past issues as long as they are not dated before 2005. The library also has both electronic CD-ROM and print indexes that will help you locate specific articles about health related subjects. Do not use folders, etc., to hold the critiques. Simply staple the pages at the top left. Please type name, and class time (M/W 11 am), include row and seat number at the top right of article or you can use a cover sheet. As with all college level work, use care with your spelling, grammar and sentence structure. There are NO “re-do’s” on the critique so make sure you put effort into the assignment. Late critiques are only accepted up until the start of the following class meeting, and will be only worth 50% of the possible points. Critiques are also considered late if you are late to class the day that the critique is due.
