Consumer Sciences Research Guide: CA 340

Active Learning Activity

Go to the Consumer Sciences Research Guide and to the CA340 tab on that guide. Click on the link to the article in the box for your table. This will take you to the record about the article – you will also need to open the article pdf itself. Read the abstract and then look through the article and note 3-5 things about the article that you think make it useful for a paper. Ignore the content of the article for now, focus on the parts of the paper itself. Why would this article be better than an article on a similar topic in Time or Newsweek?

Write your 3-5 things on the white board by your table
