This week, you will find three scholarly, peer-reviewed research articles on your topic. Remember that next week you will submit a paper on Cultural and/or Ethical perspectives of inquiry, so use this week’s assignment to prepare materials and collect information for that purpose.

Use articles that will help you explain and describe cultural and/or ethical, legal or regulatory issues related to your topic. You will analyze and evaluate these articles in your submission, which should include:

  • A brief introductory paragraph
  • Three separate paragraphs, one for each of the three articles, each presenting:
    • A brief 3–4 sentence summary of the article (use in-text citations)
    • An explanation as to what makes this source credible (in the WCU Library go to Research Guides > Research Basics > Evaluating Resources)
    • An explanation of why the article will be useful in addressing your problem or issue
  • A brief conclusion paragraph
  • An APA Style reference list on a separate page

Your paper should be 1–3 pages in length (including the References page). Adhere to APA Style throughout.
