What empirical question were the researchers trying to answer? Did the researchers primarily use qualitative methods, quantitative methods, or a combination of both? Is correlation or causation implied by the headline of the article? If the headline implies a causal relationship, how could you rewrite it to read as a correlation instead? Is it more likely that this relationship is causal or correlational? If correlational, what are potential rival explanations (e.g., third variables or lurking variables) that may explain this relationship?
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
