This weeks lab is designed to focus on your information literacy and research skills. Dr. Richman has provided step-by-step instructions to get you searching for, evaluating, and citing sources and studies. 

1. Find the studies cited in the poster, Reaching out by changing what’s within: Social exclusion predicts self-concept malleability (Richman et al., 2012), Export the citations for these studies to endnote, and add a citation to the group, "PrimingStudies". Share these citations with Dr. Richman, using endnote.

2. Find five additional sources (Both scholarly and primary) relevant to the poster. Add these citations to the "PrimingStudies" group.

3. Evaluate the poster, identify five strengths and five weaknesses of the poster, and the research that lead to it.
