You will need to write two short essays during the semester. In each essay, you will need to find a primary research report relevant to at least one theory covered in our class. Read that report, and write an essay covering the following components:
1) What are the theories covered in that report?
2) What are the research questions and/or hypotheses?
3) What is the research method and research procedure? When multiple research methods are used in that report, cover each of them.
4) How are the theories supported or rejected?
5) What are the limitations of the study?
6) If you were to build/refine the theories, would you have done things differently? Explain.
