Understanding Scholarly Sources


Discussion Questions

  1. Identify at least three aspects of the article that indicate it is a "scholarly" source. Be prepared to explain your reasoning.
  2. Google the Journal of Behavioral Education. Does it seem like a credible publication? Why or why not?
  3. Why is the article organized the way that it is? What might be the value of this organizational structure?
