Week 4 Assignment
CLC – Critique a Health Assessment Brochure
This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.
Find a health education brochure or other printed material from the Internet, a pharmacy, or a provider office. This material must have been written for the public and should include information about health conditions, causes, and methods of prevention and or treatment for the condition. Printed material can be found from well-known organizations such as the American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Academy of Family Practice Physicians, etc.
Critique the printed health education material and write a letter to the company who produced the brochure, pointing out issues of accuracy, reading level, presentation, and how it influences the public.
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
