In the second group the children were taught bad speech therapy and the children were belittled for every time they did not speak the right way. At the end of the experiment the normal-speaking children from group two that was belittled developed negative psychological effects, and

Disadvantages of a case study involve having a difficult definite conclusion to the hypothesis since there is no right or wrong answer. Also not all case studies are scientific, for example, Freud’s study of Anna O, and her problem with hysteria. This case is not scientific and is not capable of generalization. Case studies involve observations of a subject under research but the researcher may miss issues entirely due to inappropriate data collected.

On August 1, 2002, I, Kathryn Grace Bach, was born into this world. My parents arrived at Doylestown hospital at 8:30am. It was a hot, humid day in August. The temperature was already a staggering 82 degrees Fahrenheit. My mother came into the hospital wearing shorts and a T-shirt with her waving brown locks cascading down her shoulders. The doctors helped settle my mother in while I was quickly approaching. Unfortunately, my mother was unable to give birth to me naturally, so the doctors had to perform a C-section.

She has a low platelet level, which means her body couldn't form enough clots to stop the bleeding. They immediately

One fall day in 1930, Emma Akin drove her freshly washed car down a dusty road known as Texas Street. Although Mrs. Akin had lived in the town of Drumright for ten years, this was the first time she had ever gone into this part of the town. You see, Mrs. Akin was a white woman and this section of the community consisted only of African-Americans. Mrs. Akin was not certain what she would find, as she had never even spoken to a black person. You see, during this time in history many white persons did not want anything to do with the African-Americans. They believed that white and black persons should not be friends or even live in the same area.

Scholarly researchers will form a hypothesis, and then while referring back to previous research or writing by other academics or scholars, conduct research on the hypothesis in order to make their information available to the rest of the scholars. Unlike scholarly research, anecdotal evidence is something that is experienced by the researcher and is not considered very reliable. According to Mossler (2014) “Anecdotal evidence is not a substitute for good research. Only controlled experimental studies can properly answer the question of cause and effect.” (p. 48)
