TOPIC: Science of Barefoot Running Thesis Question: “What can we learn from barefoot running?”- You must also talk about minimalist shoes too. But a good part of the topic should involve the anatomy of the foot and biomechanics of the gait cycle.– I already did the introduction of my Thesis paper. (thesis prep assignment doc attached below) (you may use/edit)Notes from Professor based on my Introduction– Tone= You’re not quite doing a “study” but more an investigation into the literature. Try and make that distinction in the intro.– avoid use of “we”…I understand the intent, but instead, perhaps use “This paper will review…” or “Finally, the biomechanics of the gait cycle will be analyzed…”– Sources = 3 All are fine as peer reviewed articles, but only the Article #1 is prospective in nature. Idea was to find 2 such articles. If you are still not quite sure the difference between lit review article and prospective, ask on Wednesday. (make sure you fix this)– APA = 5 be sure to cite, even in intro after phrases like “proponents of barefoot running….” who is a proponent in the literature? Clarify. Have hanging indent after first line for each reference.FOLLOW RUBRICS BELOW PLEASE (ITS ATTACHED)Directions:Thesis Presentation and accompanying Short Paper: Students will select a contemporary topic of choice in the field of health and exercise science and prepare a presentation/short paper for their thesis topic. As such, students will, using evidence, argue for (and/or against) or attempt to justify their thesis statement in the presentation/short paper. Examples of thesis statements might be: “Protein intake immediately following exercise is best for recovery and repair of muscle tissue” or “It is better to exercise during pregnancy than not” or “Exercise reduces the risk for developing high blood pressure” or “Community public health efforts have proven effective at increasing vaccination rates”.A thesis assignment is a bit more elaborate than a traditional/standard topic review paper since it requires the investigator (you) to initially become knowledgeable in the topic area in order to provide sufficient evidence in support of or not of a thesis. Citations and referencing in the presentation and accompanying short paper must be in APA format, and use a minimum of 3 peer-reviewed, original/prospective research journal articles (along with other primary sources) as references . Other primary sources (e.g., CDC data, etc.) certainly may and should supplement information provided in the presentation/short paper.A primary source is the original article/source on the topic, rather than a “review” article which most often sites the primary source(s) as a topic is discussed. . Short papers will be about 4-5 pages (1000-1250 words) typed and double-spaced (not including cover and reference pages) An excellent online resource for APA formatting may be found at:… al_format.html.after you’ve written the 4-5 paper I would need you to make a presentation on the thesis paperuse these resources (make sure to Include references in APA format for 2 peer-reviewed and prospective journal articles) and the rest should be good sources.Huber, G., Jaitner, T., & Schmidt, M.
