Once you have reviewed and annotated 2 articles as above, search for another peer-reviewed, scholarly article that is somehow related to one of your selected articles. Think about what kinds of questions or thoughts you had after reading it, and use those to search for a related article. You might look for additional research that answers the same question but finds different conclusions, uses different methodology, and uses a different sample of participants. For this article, complete the following: 1) Include the full, proper citation for the article in APA format (1 mark) 2) In 2-3 sentences, describe how this article relates to the one you selected from above and why you opted to include it (e.g. how is it similar/different?
