Prepare five critical thinking questions-Colorism

Identify a topic of interest to you related to the course. Prepare five critical thinking questions related to your topic. Read 5 research articles from academic journals (NO POPULAR PRESS) relevant to your topic. Do not use dissertation abstracts. Complete your literature search in any of these data bases: PsycArticles, PsycINFO, or Proquest Psychological Journals. All articles must be on the same topic. The topic must be included on the title pages. Write a brief summary of each article (one page minimum, double spaced). Each summary must include a complete reference (author, title, journal, year, volume, pages). Start with the most current articles (this year and earlier). All papers must include a title page, one introduction, 5 summaries, 5 detailed abstract and citation records printed directly from your data base search, and one conclusion. You must include a copy of the detailed record of each article you review immediately following your summary. Use the following as a guide.

A. Introduction: Introduce your topic and the research related to it. Why is this topic important? List your critical thinking questions by number. Identify the theories and/or areas of research or controversy relevant to your topic. What is the basic theoretical approach or research paradigm covered in your articles? In what way do the research articles you selected address your critical thinking questions? (5pts)

controversial or important issues. Support your position using the articles you read (provide the reference). You must discuss/integrate points covered in your articles.

Answer your critical thinking questions. (10 points)
