Prior to reading this DQ, please read the CLA 1 assignment and understand what the
assignment is asking you to complete. Once you have an understanding of the CLA 1
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 six (6) peer-reviewed articles that can be used to answer your
upcoming CLA 1 assignment. Your discussion should summarize the articles in such a way
that it can justify any arguments you may present in your CLA 1 assignment and should be
different from the abstract. In addition to your researched peer-reviewed article, you must
include an example of the article researched as it is applied by industry (company, business
entity, and so forth).
Please note: This article summary should not be the only article researched for your CLA 1
assignment. You may (and should) have several other articles researched to fully answer your
CLA 1 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 CLA 1 assignment.
Important: Please ensure that your reference for the article is 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. In addition, there should be a variety of articles
summarized and as such, students should have different articles summarized. Your summary
MUST include ALL of the following in your DQ post (include every item in the bullet list below,
or you will not receive full credit):
Do these in order:
● In correct APA format, write the Reference of the article.
● Clearly state what the article is about and its purpose.
● Describe how you will use it in your upcoming assignment.
● Repeat for a total of six (6) peer-reviewed sources.
