The method application will include using the knowledge from this course and applying it to news articles that present a claim based on some sort of research. You will first need to find an article from the popular press that has some sort of sensational headline (e.g., drinking wine once per day is the equivalent of going to the gym once per day). Next, you will locate the original research publication(s) that are discussed in the news article (you must be able to locate the original research on which the news article is based). Finally, you will examine the original research publication and report problems related to what we discussed in class prior to the due date. Your method application will be due on various dates throughout the semester.
