For this assignment, you will need to read two recent articles (in the last 5 years) that report on a psychological finding that interests you. The first article can be found in a popular print or electronic media source such as a newspaper or magazine article (e.g., NY times, Cosmopolitan etc.; avoid sources that are actual research based outlets like Science direct. If you are unsure show me the article ahead of time). The second article must be from a peer-reviewed psychological journal that reports on empirical research (can be survey, correlation, experiment) and may not be a review study. If you are unsure how to find a peer-reviewed psychological journal, please see me or a staff member in the library. The two articles should be on the same topic.

For each article, provide the reference in APA style and then address the following questions:

  1. Why did you choose the topic and how does it relate to what you have learned so far as a psychology student?
  2. What are you being asked to believe or accept in each article?
  3. What type of research design does the author in the empirical study use?
  4. What evidence does each article present to support their belief or assertion?
  5. To what extent is the evidence presented in a manner such that you can scrutinize it and draw your own conclusions?
  6. Compare the style of writing in the two articles (tone, word choice, descriptive language).
  7. Which article is more detailed? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the more detailed article?
