My professors expectations:
The paper involves a compare/contrast format between the two articles. Avoid choosing articles with different ages for the populations, for example. Try to get 2 similar empirical articles to see if they come up with very similar results/ conclusions. They could be opposite, too, though. A paper based on one article is insufficient. A paper that presents one article after the other without comment is not good. (a) The sources cannot be from the same (group of) researcher(s). (b) They cannot cite each other. Use headings: 1. Abstract, 2. Introduction, Body of the paper (titles and sub-titles suitable to your topic /question), Refer to this section as 3. Main Analysis. It will include Methods, Results, and then 4. conclude with Discussion. The best way of writing the introduction is to use the introductions of the sources you chose, e.g., what literature did they cite, what are the main points/ hypotheses and to indicate how the articles that you chose have a common theme/ thesis. The body describes in detail the sources used for methods and results, but you must avoid giving one after the other without comment; use a compare and contrast format. The conclusions summarize, and give a critical perspective. No plagiarism please; rewrite/ paraphrase material into your own words. For Reference style, follow the APA style, or see the style in the articles. in your paper; but keep a copy. No excuses allowed about printing problems, computer breakdowns, etc.
