EDUC 102: Educational Psychology: Our Session

Recognizing Source Attributes

Activity 1

View the following two articles.

At your tables, discuss these two questions:

  1. If either (or both) of these articles represents "original research," how can you tell?
  2. Is either article a "scholarly" source, and what helps you determine this?

Article 1:
