Health promotion paper

Health promotion paper


Step 2: Annotated bibliography and health promotion work product (due via Blackboard submission by the end of week 10; worth 90 points): Your annotated bibliography (worth 40 points) should contain between five (5) and ten (10) peer-reviewed journal articles (no more and no less).  For each article, you will provide: (a) the full APA citation (see APA manual 6th edition) or AMA citation with a one to two paragraph summary of the article as it pertains to your Health Promotion topic (i.e., focus on what content you will apply to your work product). That is, merely cutting and pasting the abstract constitutes plagiarism and will be dealt with accordingly. Depending on the number of articles you include, the annotated bibliography will be between two (2) and four (4) single-spaced pages.  Your Health Promotion Work Product (worth 50 points) will vary in length and format. It should demonstrate the following: (a) incorporation of relevant empirical and/or expert resource content; (b) application of example course concept(s); and, (c) mastery of culturally-informed health promotion, education, and/or literacy on your topic.

Note: You may NOT use articles posted in this class for weekly readings in your Annotated Bibliography
