1. Summarize the articles in your own words. Do NOT simply paraphrase the articles’ abstracts. Your summaries should be substantially more detailed than the abstracts.
For each article, include the following:
a. An APA-style in-text reference to the article (see the APA-style tutorial and the example citations inside the EC Project folder on the Blackboard Learn site and
the APA.org website)
b. The goal(s) of the research discussed in the each article (Introduction)
c. What the authors did (Method)
1. Who were the participants?
2. Where was the research conducted?
3. What skills were measured (e.g., problem solving, language, spelling, math)? If you name a particular measure, you must cite it in APA style as a secondary source
citation. It is fine to simply indicate what skills were measured without naming the measures.
4. How were the data gathered?
d. What the authors found (Results)
1. I do not expect you to understand the complicated statistics reported in the articles. I do expect you to read the parts of the results section of each article that
indicates, in words, what the authors found, and include the findings in your summaries.
e. What the authors concluded (Discussion)
1. How did the authors interpret their findings?
2. What were the limitations of the study?
3. What is the importance of the study, according to the authors?
f. The number of direct quotations must not exceed one per article. In addition, the quotation cannot be longer than one sentence.
It is important that you read, comprehend, and summarize these articles in your own words.
g. Each summary should be about 2-3 pages long, double-spaced.
2. Cite your articles in an APA-style reference section.
a. Do ONE SECTION that includes BOTH ARTICLES.
