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. How does the article contribute to an ongoing scholarly conversation? What does it add to the conversation?
  3. Why is the article organized the way that it is? What might be the value of this organizational structure?
  4. Google the Journal of Behavioral Education. Does it seem like a credible publication? Why or why not?
