Read, summarize, and evaluate two research articles. Based on your content area of interest, select two articles to review. Please format the article review as outlined in the syllabus. Each review is valued at 20 points / 40 points total. Submit as a document. You may create one document that contains both reviews, or two separate documents, uploading two submissions to Canvas under this assignment tab.
Create an article review for each article that you review. That will be two article review submissions on the one Canvas assignment, or you may make both reviews as one Word document.
Using the article review format in the syllabus, copy and paste the format into a new word document, and fill it in. The bibliographical information should be listed at the top since this is basically an expanded annotated bibliography; this format is used for that purpose. Copy and paste your citation there in APA format.
10 key terms are words you extract from the article that you think are critical to the concepts of the article. I have had students include terms that were what we would call Tier II or Tier III vocabulary – specifically used in the article that they had to go look up because they were not clear to them as a reader. Free choice here.
Summarize the article in about 350 words.
Implications for Teaching are specific to you. In what ways, in your content area, will you be able to use this information in your teaching?
You may use the Vise Library online research tool to locate peer-reviewed journal articles of a content area if not listed on the syllabus list at http://cumberland.libguides.com/databases (Links to an external site.). Note: a blog, wikipedia, association newsletter, etc. is not considered a peer-reviewed research article and will receive zero credit if selected.
You may retrieve peer-reviewed research articles of interest to you by searching in the online database at CU’s Vise Library. The options from the syllabus list are copied below:
