Psychology in the Real World

Paper Assignment: Psychology in the Real World
Throughout this course, we’ve talked about practical implications of psychology and how these ideas can be observed in the real world. For this assignment, I’d like you to find an example of psychology in the news.
Find a news article from the last 5 years that reports the findings of a psychological study. The article must be from a reputable news source, not a blog post or unknown website. The American Psychological Association (APA) has a great news portal you can use to find your article: http://www.apa.org/news/psycport/ (链接到外部网站。). You can also use Google or search directly through the news source’s website.
The article you select should be long/detailed enough for you to develop a good understanding of the study being discussed.
Next, find the psychological study that was mentioned in this article. This part may be more challenging. A lot of articles can be found using Google scholar (a subset of Google that can be used to search for scholarly literature and research). I’ve included an example article and screenshots of myself tracking down the article on Canvas. You may not use the same article I used in this example.
Once you have found the original research, compare and contrast the actual research study with the summary found on the popular news site. Your paper should address the following topics/criteria (in any order that makes sense for your paper):
Describe and summarize both articles. Why did you choose this topic? How does it connect to the content we’ve discussed in this course? What was the purpose of each article? Were they the same or different? Why was that the case?Compare and contrast the key points, style, and voice of the article. Why might they be different or the same?How well did the popular news site summarize the actual findings of the study? Did they represent the actual research accurately? Why or why not?What is the importance/relevance of this research?Your paper should be at least 4 pages, double-spaced in Times New Roman font. It must include APA-style in text citations and a reference page. You can find resources for creating these citations here:
