It is important that you learn how to critically review research.  In our society today, we are exposed to so much information and so many studies.  Some of this information is excellent, some is useful, and some is very, very bad.  How can you determine what information is useful and what is dangerous?  One way is to take a course like Critical Thinking; however, the facts that I give you will be outdated all too soon. The most important thing you will learn from this course—and from your college education—is how to critically evaluate information presented to you. Critical thinking involves asking five questions: who, what, when, where, how.

1. Find and read an article in the media or a video clip that reports the results of a scientific study.   You must include the link to the website. 
2. How accurately did the mass media report the study? 
3. Answer the above five questions about the article (Who, What, When, Where, and How). Refer to page 351 of your text and be sure to cover all the highlights discussed.  
Do NOT use entertainment or sports articles for your review. These are to be research based.
