Summary & Analysis for 40 Studies that Changed Psychology

For the study you are asked to read & present, each student is to fill out one of these pages to turn in. The point of this page is to not only let me know that you have, in fact, done the reading, but also to act as a brief review for you to prepare from.

Each answer should be no more than 20 words long – you really want to try to keep your responses as brief and to the point as possible. Select only the most important information to include. Feel free to use bullet point formatting if it’s helpful. The work must be ORIGINAL and HANDWRITTEN.
