You were given two articles on the same topic. One article was from a peer-reviewed, scientific journal and the other article was from a popular media publication (i.e., Psychology Today).
Using your peer-reviewed, scientific journal, you should respond to these questions:
Identify the research question
Identify the hypotheses
Summarize the results
Using your Psychology Today article, compare and contrast this article with the peer-reviewed, scholarly article. In your analysis, you should include:
The main arguments/points in the Psychology Today article
How the Psychology Today article uses the scientific article to uphold its arguments/points
How does the Psychology Today article expand upon the findings of the scientific article
Does the Psychology Today article offer additional evidence for its arguments/points? Does the Psychology Today article go beyond the findings of the scientific article? If so, in what way?
Identifying the proper uses for each article.
Your typed paper should be 4 to 5 pages long, double-spaced, 12 point font. Please check grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Please make sure to paraphrase when you summarize the articles. Do NOT copy the articles word for word. You can occasionally quote the article (make sure to do a proper citation with quotation marks), but don’t copy the entire article for your paper. In addition, do NOT plagiarize another person’s work. I expect all of you to do this assignment on your own. Therefore, if your paper looks similar to your classmate’s paper, you will both get a “0” on the assignment.
In addition, because you will be writing about another person’s work, you will need to cite your sources in text and have a reference page. Although I prefer APA style, I will accept any format for citation and referencing
