EXSC 241B – Introduction to Kinesiology Professor: Matthew Cain, PhD, CSCS, NSCA-CPT *Rubric Attached Article Critique/Review Guidelines This assignment is designed to give you practice finding and summarizing research information in the field of exercise and nutritional sciences, as it relates to EXSC 241B Introduction of Kinesiology topics discussed throughout the semester. Please select one of the articles on Bb (or you may use google scholar/pubmed for another article). I am looking primarily for your reflection, which has two parts: • • •
Section I – Summary of the academic article: please reflect on what you learned including – what was familiar to you, what was completely new, and what you struggled to understand (this might be an area you examine further in the future).
Section II – Application of the academic article: give examples of WHY, what, and how you will and could use this information in your current or future career and/ or life. Practical Application 101! The more specific your information and examples are, the better! If you need examples and/or help, please let me know. Remember, although both sections are equal in points, application of information is critical in our field (and in any field). It is important to start critical thinking and analyzing concepts now, and also, applying those concepts in the field you wish to enter in the future. It will be a challenging, but rewarding process . . .
I promise you that! Example of APA format: Please Use this Format at the Top of Your Article McCallum, R. (1998). Measuring Cognitive State Anxiety in Elite Water Polo Players.
