Journal Review Assignment

Journal Article Reviews:

 

            You have been assigned a journal article review for your midterm in order to complete this course.  This review must be from a PEER reviewed, scholarly journal.  (Magazines, newspapers and websites are not acceptable.)  Your assignment is to locate a journal article that interests you, on a topic within education. Then write a 3-5 page synopsis reflecting upon what you read.  Here are some tips and requirements for the assignments:

1.  Your article must be pre-approved by the instructor.  Please email me the link to the article so that I can review it before you begin writing.

2. You will need to read and re-read the article several times. Take notes in your own words while you read.

3.  Summarize the article in your own words. (It may help to explain what you just read to someone who is not in education and then write down what you said.)

            Your summary should include:

            What the article is about

            What the research question or questions were

            The hypothesis of the researchers

            The participants in the study (sample)

            What did the researchers do? (How was data collected?)

            Conclusion (what did the study show?)

4. Finally, integrate what you have learned from the article into what you have read previously or experienced in the classroom. What implications does this new knowledge have for you as an educator? Be prepared to present a brief power point presentation to the class that explains your article (10-15 minutes in length)

 

5. REMEMBER ALL WRITING AT THIS LEVEL MUST BE DONE ACCORDING TO APA STYLE 6th Edition
