Read the abstract in the article above. Think about:
1. What evidence did the author collect and use for their research? What were their methods?
2. What did they discover via their research?
3. Think back to your last assignment and our last class - what type of articles is this?
4. Is this useful for evaluating the claim we just discussed?
To do on your own: Open your source and read through it for a few minutes. Identify and open at least one study they discuss in the source, try to open the full text of the study. Read part of the study, concentrate especially on understanding the abstract (summary) if it is marked and see if you can find the methods of the study (what the writers did). The discussion section (the outcomes of the study is illuminating also). We'll take about 10 minutes for this. Note: you might have to click a few links to get to a study.
