Unit VIII Article Critique
The purpose of this assignment is to investigate a professional journal in the field of fire prevention that interests you. The objective of your critique is to find an article and compare the information in the article to what you have been learning in class.

a description of how the article either supports or disproves material in the course,
your point of view, and
a summarization of your thoughts and suggestions in support of your opinion.
The selected article should not be more than four years old. You are encouraged to utilize the Research Databases found in the CSU Online Library located in the Course Menu.
