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 this paper you must:
(1) Summarize the main points and evidence found within each resource in approximately 150-250 words per summary (use your own words). If you are unable to clearly summarize the main points then this may be a sign that you should chose a different article.
(2) Describe using examples at least 3 ways that the article styles are different
(3) Describe using examples at least 2 ways that the articles styles are similar
(4) Describe one situation where you would benefit using a popular press article, and one situation where you would be better off using a peer-reviewed research article
(5) Provide in-text citations and a reference page in APA format (including DOI number for the peer-reviewed article)
(6) Attach the first page of each article (which has text) to the back of your paper
(7) Write a paper that is coherent, with smooth transitions between topics (no bullet points or lists)
