Discussion question for social research
Find an article in a newspaper or magazine about a topic that social scientists would be interested in. (Online versions of the newspaper or magazine are OK. Provide a link to the article you use. Scan and attach a copy of the article if it is from a paper version of the newspaper or magazine.) Briefly (one or two sentences) summarize the main point(s) of the article as the first part of your DQ response.
Describe how the author(s) of the article obtained the information (data) they used to write the article. Finally, describe how a social scientist might approach the same topic. In what ways would the scientific study of the topic differ from the journalistic study of the topic? Is one method of knowing better than another? Why or why not?.
