    What is a strong, credible source of scientific information? How do you “know?” How can you translate information about the strengths and limitations of articles into your own thorough and thoughtful analysis of the overall literature?
    Choose and read one of the sample papers ( and respond to the following questions while identifying and referencing the strengths and limitations of the paper you chose to read:What “problem” or “argument” do you see in this paper?
    Did the authors respond to or otherwise acknowledge that problem or argument?If so, how and in what part of the paper did they do this?
    If not, what other issue did they address? How and in what part of the paper?
    How might you use that problem or argument to shape the development of your own research question and/or review of the literature for your final paper?
    What did you learn from this week’s resources regarding strategies on how to conduct a literature review? What strategies do you plan to employ as you review the literature for your final paper?
