In this assignment, I will compare and contrast articles from research and the popular media and evaluate their applicability to early childhood practice.
· Create a 4- to 6-page paper (not including the title and references pages) in a Word document for your response.
· Use APA format for the title page, references page, and in-text citations.
Part 1: Dissecting a Research Article
Locate a peer-reviewed article related to early childhood development – a topic of interest to you, such as music and cognitive development. The article should be no older than 5 to 7 years.
A good place to search is the college database or Google Scholar. Peer-reviewed articles, also called scholarly sources, are written by experts in a field and written to keep others interested in that field up to date on the most recent research, findings, and news (see Module 1 Learning Objects).
Dissect the research article, paraphrasing the material found related to:
· Purpose or hypothesis of the study
· What the author(s) hoped to find
· Issue being researched
· Other research done on the topic
· Theorists or theories used as a framework for the study
· How participants were found or recruited
· Demographics of the participants
· Summary of the discussion and conclusions (the main points you took away from the reading)
· Recommendations for further research
Part 2: Dissecting a Popular Article
Locate an article in the popular media on the same topic as the research article.
A popular media article is not found in a scholarly journal. These are articles you would find in a magazine you can purchase at the book or grocery store; something online at sites such as The Huffington Post, CNN, or a parenting or teacher website. A rule of thumb: if the article does not have scholarly resources, it is considered popular media.
Compare and contrast the two articles. In the comparison and contrast, complete the following:
· Synopsis of each article
· Explanation of how the articles are the same
· Explanation of the differences between the two (be specific). (For example, is one article more credible than the other? What makes this so?)
· How comparing and contrasting the articles affects your feelings about and understanding of the topic
· Complete, APA formatted citations for both articles
