I’m working on a Psychology question and need guidance to help me study.
Choose one of the articles that I uploaded.
Research Article Critique: The written component of this assignment is part of a General Education Assessment Review. Students will read and critique two articles on educational psychology. Both critiques will be a written paper of 500 words. Students are required to use the Stetson library to find a peer-reviewed article for both assignments. The written article must be focused on classroom culture and the other will be on an educational psychology topic of your choice. THE REFERENCE LIBARIAN IS YOUR FRIEND!
Cite article citation in APA format.

Briefly summarize the most important points of the article. Organize your thoughts carefully since you need to express yourself concisely. This section should be NO more than one-third of the total length of the reaction.
What is your personal reaction to the issue or topic presented? Tell what you thought about what you read. Be specific about what you liked or didn’t like, and why. Support your ideas with at least one cited-APA style- refence from the article. This section should be no more than a third of the total paper.
Connection to the Classroom:
Describe how the article connects to what you are learning in this class and reading in the text. Identify specific ideas that educators could apply to a classroom and justify why those ideas are effective with at least one direct quote from your textbook. This section should be no more than a third of the whole response.
