Unit III Homework Assignment
On pages 81–82 in The Curious Researcher: A Guide to Writing Research Papers, read through Steps 1 and 2, and
answer the questions shown there in paragraph format: one paragraph for Step 1, and one paragraph for Step 2. Each
paragraph should consist of at least 50 words. Engage in some critical thinking skills here. Is any information missing in
these “facts?” How many people were asked? Who was asked? What was the definition of attractive for each of the study’s
participants? How reliable is the magazine?
Next, write a similar paragraph based on a fact contained in one of the sources you will be using in your final paper. This
paragraph must also be at least 50 words in length. Remember to use in-text citations using APA format if necessary.
