Order Description

Using Your Scholarly Voice
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
—Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
Scholarly writing has traditions and expectations. It is different from journalism or letter writing because you are providing insights on the issues that are grounded in research, critical reading, and analysis rather than presenting an opinion or a personal belief. Scholarly writers strive for academic integrity and work to keep personal bias and beliefs out of their writing. Review your Learning Resources and view the media provided on scholarly writing.
For this Discussion, research and select one non-peer-reviewed article related to health that you believe presents bias.
By Day 4, post a brief summary of the article you selected. Then, explain why you think it presents bias. Provide an example of how the bias can be reduced by using scholarly voice. Expand on your insights using the Learning Resources.
Use APA formatting for your discussion and to cite your resources.
