Kids struggle with both Research Methods and how to categorize the perspectives of psych. Also - we want them to have a taste of current research being done out there to expose them to all different types of psychology and to show them what "psychologists" can do (beside therapy!)
This activity takes the short snippets from the Monitor (APA's magazine) and describe major research studies taking place with a quick snippet of their findings. Kids then need to discuss and put into perspectives. 20 different research studies!
Due to the nature of the activity - there is not an answer key because many options can be correct due to student discussion and perception.
Engaging. Hands on. Promotes conversation.
