___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Locate an article in the popular press (e.g., CNN, New York Times, Parents.com, etc.) published within the past 5 years (after January 2013) describing an interesting finding related to Lifespan Development. Then locate the original source of the findings—the primary source article that originally reported the findings. (That is, the peer reviewed, scientific journal). Write a 3-page paper that both summarizes the findings of the scientific article and critiques the pop science article’s report of the findings.

Did the popular press article accurately represent the findings?

Were any findings misrepresented and/or exaggerated to make it sound more exciting?

How do these findings relate to materials discussed in the textbook and/or in class?
