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  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

Paraphrase:  Exercise is beneficial for one’s health regardless of intensity levels (Ross et al., 2015).
