Prior to reading this DQ, please read the PA1 assignment and understand what the assignment is asking you to complete. Once you have an understanding of the PA1 assignment, please continue to the paragraph below to complete DQ1.
Using the Library Information Resource Network (LIRN), JSTOR, or any other electronic journal database, research one (1) peer-reviewed article that can be used to answer your upcoming PA1 assignment. Your discussion should summarize the article in such a way that it can justify any arguments you may present in your PA1 assignment and should be different from the abstract.
Please note: This article summary should not be the only article researched for your PA1 assignment. You may (and should) have several other articles researched in order to fully answer your PA1 assignment. The concept of this DQ is to allow students to be proactive in the research necessary to complete this assignment. You may use your article summary, partially or in its entirety in your PA1 assignment.
Important: Please ensure that you insert your reference for the article in correct APA format, as your reference in your discussion post. Depending on which electronic database you use, you should see a Cite selection for your article.
