Last week, you read journalistic articles about food waste, both of which came from reliable and well-known news sources (Aubrey and Royte). Remember that journalistic articles are mainstreamed, meaning they are meant for the general public. This week you read a peer reviewed academic article (Household Food Waste). Unlike journalistic articles, academic journals are written for experts within certain fields.
Looking closely at both, answer the following questions.
1.What are some of the similarities or differences between the articles? These can do with context, evidence or examples, tone, vocabulary, etc?
2. Who do you think the targeted audience is for each article?
3. What do you notice about the sources each article uses? Citations? Which one seems more credible, or does it depend on the circumstances?
