  • Use a research “template” incorporating claims, evidence, and commentary.

    Many have blamed the rise in obesity on a more sedentary life style, including the move to the suburbs, where people drive instead of walk, and increased viewing of television.One study of children watching television found a significant drop in the average metabolic rate during viewing (Klesges, Shelton, and Klesges). Another study reports that viewing also affects their eating behavior (Robinson and Killen). No doubt that children who exercise less tend to weigh more, but the couch potato argument does not explain why the enormous weight gains have occurred over the past twenty-five years. {The Penguin Handbook, page 399]

Plagiarism: Sentence Structure

Yahweh values highly those who are devoted to Him, and when they die He suffers loss. To the Psalmist this meant that He would not casually let their death pass unheeded, but would heal and preserve them.

The Lord highly values those who are loyal to Him. When they die, He endures a loss. The Psalmist is not necessarily saying the Lord rejoices when one of his beloved servants dies, but that the Lord does not take the death of those servants lightly—but beholds it in high regard.
