For the journal assignments you will read a scientific study and a popular news article written about that study. Then you will write a report that explains how the scientific methods was used in the study, and how well the popular news article reported the study.


DSL 200 Scientific News Journals

You will be responsible for writing three journals throughout the duration of the term. The lowest grade will be dropped.

The assignment

For each project, you will be given a news story and a scientific journal article that goes with it, posted to Canvas by the instructor. Each of these journal articles will have been published in a reputable online magazine, newspaper, or journal. The news story may or may not be.

You will then write a short essay, 1-2 pages in length, detailing the parts of the scientific method discussed in your article and comparing that information to what was reported in the news story. Each entry will be written in a logical and professional manner using the APA template attached to the post.

The entire entry must be written IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Direct quotes of the articles are not allowed. However, when you summarize or paraphrase something from one of the articles you will need to provide an in-text APA reference. The guide to APA referencing is attached to this post.

The essay must be written entirely in third person. DO NOT USE FIRST OR SECOND PERSON. This means you cannot use the words “I”, “we”, or “you”.

What is turned in to the instructor?

For each week that a journal assignment is due, you will submit your journal entry via Canvas by its due date.

Entry Content

You will be graded on the following content that combines information you obtain from both the news story and the scientific article:

Introduction (1 paragraph)

This section identify which of the two articles was the scientific study and the subject of the scientific study. You will also identify the problem or observation that spurred the research. DO NOT LIST THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY ITSELF HERE. You will identify the hypothesis the scientists were testing. Remember that a hypothesis is a testable educated guess. Thus, it is not appropriate to pose a question here. However, while reading your articles, it can be helpful to ask yourself what explanation scientists tried to use to explain their initial observation. You will then transition into the body of the journal
