posttest quasi-experimental design, that included two middle schools located in the same urban school district. The six- month study intervention was named "Girls on the Move" that included racially diverse, sedentary, urban middle school girls that participated in three motivational, individually tailored counseling sessions with a school nurse and an after- school Physical Activity Club. Recruitment goals were met with 38 in the intervention and 35 in the control school completing baseline measures. Only one girl in the intervention school and three girls in the control school were unable to complete the 6-month measures due to family relocation to a different geographical area.

school was racially diverse and of low SES with over 75.0% participating in the free and reduced lunch program. Made me think In the first study, I like that the researchers was built on a quasi-experimental design, that used both quantitative and qualitative methods. I think by employing mixed methods into my research, I will be able to utilize the strengths of both quantitative and qualitative methods. For the second study, I liked the idea of having a school nurses that was well-recognized. She was a medical professionals who has direct involvement in the school-base, prevention-oriented intervention programs. Another thing I found interesting is that the study incorporated motivational counseling sessions. Lots of children suffer from emotional abuse, physical abuse, and so many other things that I think it by incorporating motivational counseling session could help them internally. Although physical activity can assist in making people feel better about themselves, it won’t fix what’s happening within.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
