UGS 302: Self Care and OTC Products - Acosta


Class One

To do on your own: Open your article and read through it for a few minutes. Identify and open at least one study they discuss in the article. 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). We'll take about 10 minutes for this. Note: you might have to click a few links to get to a study.

To talk about at your table: Discuss the following questions with your group.

  1. You looked at the article I gave you and found a study. What is a study?
  2. What are some differences between the original article and the study? Are they created differently? Do they have a different purpose? What other characteristics do you notice that differentiates these articles?
  3. Which of the articles you looked at was written first? Does this matter?
  4. Did you notice any discrepancies between the two articles?
