First read the article in the pictures that I have attached. Next, answer the following question. The answers to these questions should be a page or a page and a half. This is not an essay; these questions should be answered in a bullet point format.
What is the main point or argument of this article? Quote a statement that includes this point.
What is the hypothesis or reseach question the author is studying? Quote a sentence that discusses the hypothesis or research question.
What are the variables in the hypothesis or research question? Be specific and independent the independent and dependent variables.
What are the findings or results of the study? Does the evidence support the hypothesis? Explain how.
What is the sample population size? How many individuals participated in the study? Or, how many groups did the researcher observe?
Was the research conducted on the micro or macro level of society? Give details from the study which demonstrate the level.
Are the results of the research article generalizable to a population beyond the study? Remember that a microlevel study is not large enough or random enough to be generalizable.
Next, start another page answering the following questions.
What information do you need about the ways in which the issue affects people differently according to their gender, class, race, etc..?
What information do you need about the micro or macro levels of this issue?
What information do you need about the causes of the issue?
What information do you need about ways to ameliorate the issue (i.e. make things better)?
When you use quotes from the book, an article, or video, make sure you place the words in quotation marks and include internal references to the article. This means, at the end of the sentence with the quote, type the authors name, the date of the publication and page number where you found the quote. Put parentheses around this information. It should look something like this (Conley 2017, p. 275).
