Full Title of Report

Your introduction will begin here. Provide background (history) about the study you want to discuss/review, and why.  Why is it important? What are the important aspects of the study (what was it meant to find, and why was it important?), and how does it relate to similar studies? Note: Your thesis for the review will be placed at the end of your introductory paragraph as a brief summary of the proceeding discussion information.


The Methods section will begin here. How did the scientists/doctors/researchers conduct their experiment(s)? What process did they follow? What research materials did you use (including print, web, databases, etc.) to supplement your reading of the study (you must review at least 4 other scholarly sources on the topic of the study)? How did that research help you better understand the study you chose? How did this study influence other scientific/medical/research endeavors, and how could/have methods vary(ied) to yield different results?


The Results section will begin here. What were the specific findings of the studies? Were there any variations in results, and if so, did changes in the process influence variations?


The Discussion section will begin here. What conclusions can you make about the sufficiency/adequacy/usefulness of the study you reviewed, and why? How do similar experiments supplement/negate your selected study? How has your study influenced the specific discipline to which it belongs? Be sure to provide judgments about the validity of the study/experiment you reviewed based on your personal knowledge of the topic or the research you did to help you write this report. Do you believe (using your supplemental research as a guide) that the results are accurate or flawed in some way? If similar studies were conducted, how did they compare to the study you chose? Explain.
