⦁ Assignment: Research in Psychology
Psychology in the News
STEP 1: Find a popular news article from within the past 10 years that reports on the results of a psychological study. This should not be a blog entry, but a published article from a news source such as Time Magazine, The New York Times, Newsweek, NPR, https://blog.keenessays.com/2021/07/05/difference-in-language-that-can-affect-how-the-healthcare-team-and-treatments-are-perceived/ CNN, Fox News, etc. A great place to look is the APA’s Psychology news portal: http://www.apa.org/news/psycport/. Read through the article and ensure that it is descriptive and sufficiently long enough in order to draw conclusions from the original research mentioned.
STEP 2: Go find the psychological study or studies that are mentioned in the news report. Sometimes those are not freely available online, so you may have to track down the original study through your library’s website. You can find these articles within reputable journals, such as the American Journal of Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Emotion, Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Counseling Psychology, Journal of Educational Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and Memory. https://blog.keenessays.com/2021/07/05/difference-in-language-that-can-affect-how-the-healthcare-team-and-treatments-are-perceived/ The study should have been performed within the past 10 years.
STEP 3: Write a paper between 250-500 words that
⦁ describes and summarizes both articles
⦁ compares and contrasts the key points, style, and purpose of the news article with that of the research article
⦁ examines if the news article accurately describes the research
⦁ includes correct APA title page, ⦁ APA citations (in-text ), and APA reference page
