Some studies for tomorrow


Here are some news articles about studies we’re going to be looking at tomorrow. You can read them ahead of time if you want, but it’s optional. I think they’re interesting, though.

Some of the questions we’ll be thinking about in class:

  • What information is presented?
  • What do you still wonder?
  • How has the study methodology been explained?
  • What has been “glossed over”?
  • What are the limitations on the study?
  • Is there more research to be completed?
  • Should more research be completed?
  • How much do you think it cost to gather this data and analyze it?

Enjoy.
