					Article Review Format
Below is the format I want you to use for article reviews. It is simple, but you do need to
follow the instructions without any variation. The article you choose must relate to a
health, health education, or physical education topic that relates to young children (PK-
grade 5). Articles must be selected from a periodical or journal that is reputable.
Newspapers are not acceptable sources. Stay away from "questionable" sources;
those where articles are not reviewed or "refereed" by an editorial board. Be especially
leery of using any online source that may not contain accurate information. If you use
an online periodical/journal, please make sure you include the URL of the article in the
bibliographic content. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Typing Guidelines
1.    The critique must be typed and/or word processed using 12 point type in Times
      New Roman (or similar) font. Margins should be one (1) inch for the whole page
      (sides and top). The entire document should be no more than one page. DO
      NOT INCLUDE A TITLE PAGE!
2.    The entire document should be double-spaced.

Sample Review
Below is a rough sample of how your critique should be laid out; items in red should not
be included in your paper... they are just info comments or examples. Include the items
in black.

Your Name

Course and Section (KSPE 1234 A)

Title of Article

Bibliographic citation: This is where you will cite the information on the article, i.e.,

source, author(s), date, issue, volume number, etc. (Use APA format for the

bibliographic entry.)


(At this point, you will write two paragraphs; the first paragraph is a brief synopsis of

what the article was about. The second paragraph tells what you thought about the

article; in other words your opinion! Remember, according to APA style a paragraph

must have a minimum of three and not more than seven complete sentences. Don't

forget to double-space between paragraphs.)
   This article was about the effects of exercise on blood glucose levels in young

children with Type I diabetes. The authors described how the study was designed and

told.....



   In my opinion, this was a very well written article containing valuable information for

parents, friends, and teachers of young children with Type I diabetes who participate in

the child's management program...
