Psychological Research Response Pieces
Throughout the course, you will be required to read 4 original psychological articles. This gives you the opportunity to gain an understanding of psychological research straight from the source (rather than through the filter of a textbook). Some of these writings are classic work from early researchers, and others are more contemporary work. All are aimed at giving you an understanding of how psychological research is conducted and reported.
To enhance your understanding of these pieces, you are required to write a response piece about two of these articles. These are NOT summaries. You will not pass the assignment if you simply summarize the article. These response pieces require you to critically evaluate the article and apply its concepts to your everyday life and the material we are discussing in the class.
