In this assignment, I will compare and contrast articles from research and the popular media and evaluate their applicability to early childhood practice. · Create a 4- to 6-page paper (not including the title and references pages) in a Word document for your response. · Use APA format for the title page, references page, and in-text citations. · Develop an introduction and conclusion for your paper. Part 1: Dissecting a Research Article Locate a peer-reviewed article related to early childhood development a topic of interest to you, such as music and cognitive development. The article should be no older than 5 to 7 years. A good place to search is the college database or Google Scholar. Peer-reviewed articles, also called scholarly sources, are written by experts in a field and written to keep others interested in that field up to date on the most recent research, findings, and news (see Module 1 Learning Objects). Dissect the research article, paraphrasing the material found related to: · Purpose or hypothesis of the study · What the author(s) hoped to find · Issue being researched · Other research done on the topic · Theorists or theories used as a framework for the study · How participants were found or recruited · Demographics of the participants · Summary of the discussion and conclusions (the main points you took away from the reading) · Limitations · Recommendations for further research Part 2: Dissecting a Popular Article Locate an article in the popular media on the same topic as the research article. A popular media article is not found in a scholarly journal. These are articles you would find in a magazine you can purchase at the book or grocery store; something online at sites such as The Huffington Post, CNN, or a parenting or teacher website. A rule of thumb: if the article does not have scholarly resources, it is considered popular media. Compare and contrast the two articles. In the comparison and contrast, complete the following: · Synopsis of each article · Explanation of how the articles are the same · Explanation of the differences between the two (be specific). (For example, is one article more credible than the other? What makes this so?) · How comparing and contrasting the articles affects your feelings about and understanding of the topic · How each article applies to work in early childhood education · Complete, APA formatted citations for both articles
