If you want students to give students extensive guidance in reading an interesting 2003 article on a within-subjects experiment,

Hemenover, S. H. (2003) The good, the bad, and the healthy: Impacts of

emotional disclosure of trauma on resilient self-concept and psychological

distress. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 29, 1236-1244.

  2. a classic study such as

    Whitehead, W. E., Blackwell, B., & Robinson, A. (1978). The effects of diazepam on phobic

    avoidance behavior and phobic anxiety. Biological Psychiatry, 13, 59-64.


  3. a short, interesting article, such as

    Sinclair, R. C. & Mark, M. M. (1998). Affective cues and processing strategy: Color-Coded

    examination forms influence performance. Teaching of Psychology, 25,130-132.
