PSYCH 1: Assignment

Assignment 3: Popular Press vs. Peer Reviewed Articles

Uploads Due on Bcourses Before the Start of Assigned Sections Starting November 13th

Overview: Like a literature review, this assignment is intended to have you compare and contrast the writing style and potential uses of a popular press article versus a peer-reviewed primary research article that discusses a psychological phenomenon, written within the last 10 years. The articles need to address the same area of interest (for example, depression and gender, love and crying, teenage norms and ostracism etc.), but do not have to necessarily be about the same exact experiment.  For hints on appropriate psychological phenomena, reference the textbook and lecture notes.
