WRITTEN REPORT 1-B (ARTICLE REVIEW ON METHODS) Article Review 1-B: Choose one article to read, either How to Talk Back to Statistics, Prison Boom , or Social Structure in Daily Life . Each of these are in your textbook after chapter 2. Follow the instructions below to analyze the research methods the researchers used to collect data for one article. Format : Written Report 1-B should in essay form, and it must be typed. The essay should be 1- 2 pages in length. Use double-spacing between the lines and 12-point font. Save them in a Word document (.doc). I cannot open Word Perfect documents. If I receive a document electronically, and cannot open it, I will notify you and it may be considered late. Citations : When you use quotes from the article, make sure you place the words in quotation marks and include internal references to the article. This means putting parentheses in your paper with the author’s name and page numbers that you use. Your reference should look something like this (Mutari & Lakew 2003, p. 275). You need a bibliographic citation for these quotes at the end of the review. Writing tips : You do need to use college level grammar, expression, phrasing, spelling, and organization. Use spell check, go to the Learning Center or have a friend listen to you read your paper to see if you clearly stated what you intended to express. Grading tips : Keep in mind that I will evaluate your review and assign points according to the answers to each question. If you answer half the questions, you will receive no more than half the points. This being your second assignment, I will evaluate your papers much more rigidly than the first assignment.
