Journal 1 Instructions
The student will compose a brief essay comparing and contrasting scientific communication, including the role science plays in contemporary society (DSL 200.1), distinguishing between science and pseudoscience, and identifying when science is misrepresented in the media (DSL 200.3). The scientific data must be from reputable source(s) and must be accurately interpreted and cited (DSL 200.4). Additional reliable sources may be referred to, as needed or required.
The first source listed at the bottom is a news article discussing the primary study listed below it. The best strategy is to first read and understand the abstract of the study. Abstracts often contain summaries of all parts of the scientific method. Further details can be uncovered by reading the paper, but most information required for the assignment can be found in the abstract. There may be scientific jargon in the paper, so do your best to look up terms and notations that are commonly used to fully understand what the study is discussing. If further help is needed to understand the jargon, please reach out and I will do my best to assist.
Students should read both sources thoroughly to achieve a good understanding of what the primary source says, and then be able to evaluate how the information is communicated to the lay public in the news article. Students should look for any inaccuracies, omissions, or misrepresentations in the news article and point them out with specific examples. Incidents of well reported sections of the study should also be highlighted with examples where possible.
The basic flow of information should mirror the steps of the scientific method. Students should cover the background problems or observations investigated by the study in the introductory paragraph. Students should state the hypothesis according to the primary source (scientific study) and then explain how well that hypothesis is communicated by the news article. Students should briefly summarize the experimental methods, key results, and conclusions or overall interpretations of the study. Then students further analyze how the news article describes those experimental methods, key results, conclusion, noting any major discrepancies between the study and the news report, as well as examples of quality reporting. At the end, students should summarize how well the news article conveys the key information from the scientific study, referring to points made in the analysis throughout the paper.
Wherever possible, students should use the concepts described in the Communications Module on how proper scientific reporting should be conducted. Try to focus on examples of good scientific reporting illustrated while pointing out any areas of poor scientific reporting that deserve appropriate criticism. Bear in mind, a news article will never be as detailed as the original study, but they should relate the important information to their audience with sufficient detail and context without misleading the audience in any way.
For full details on evaluation, please refer to the grading rubric below. The journal includes the following processes and requirements:
Start with an engaging attention getter, and introduce the topic of the paper by identifying the scientific observations/problems addressed by the media communication and in the scientific communication;
Identify which source is the media or secondary source and which source is the scientific or primary source;
Write a valid hypothesis statement which is addressed by the research in the scientific article and explain if the hypothesis is presented correctly in the media source;
Compare and contrast remaining sections of the scientific method including research methods, results including data, and research conclusions comparing what is stated in the media source and the scientific source;
Effectively evaluate any data tables/charts needed to discuss this study properly, accurately describing what is communicated by that data; Note: I require one data chart at minimum from the scientific study to be included in the paper along with the student’s interpretation of the data. Including more than one can be useful, but is not required.
End the journal definitively, summarizing key points made in the paper;
Use paraphrased information, examples, and evidence to support all points. Do not forget to cite paraphrased information with appropriate APA style citations in-text;
Properly organize information within and between paragraphs, including proper transitions and a clear flow of content in the paper;
Format layout, citations, and references in correct APA style (12 point font);
The final submission should be roughly between 3-5 pages double spaced (not including title and reference pages) while covering all parts of the grading rubric listed below.
