Literature Review Assignment Please provide a standard cover sheet with the Assignment Name, your name, date, and class. Most research projects include a literature review to determine what knowledge exists on the subject under study and to develop the theoretical framework that will be used in the study (this will be developed in week 5). The literature review sets the context for the entire research project by explaining what others have found in researching the same or similar specific research questions. A literature review begins with an introductory paragraph in which the writer frames the research topic and its significance, and the puzzle that the researcher is addressing. To do that, the writer will summarize the major relevant arguments on the research subject, highlighting the main issues and how schools of thought might differ. If there are key terms to be defined, the writer should do that here. The body of the literature review tells readers what others have found in their studies about your specific research question (the extent of existing knowledge on your specific research question), critiques what is right or wrong with these other studies, and discusses how the work is distinguishable from the research study you are proposing. Your review should organize material by theme or method or what makes sense for the project. This literature review should include a critical review of at least 10 appropriate articles, to include scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. You should use parenthetical citations and include (Author last name, Date) in the text. When using a direct quote, cite (Author last name, Date, p. #). Please use “References” format for the complete citations at the end of the assignment. The conclusion should summarize the primary “sense of the literature”, encapsulating for the reader where the existing literature ends and your research will start as you seek to answer the question that still remains and add to the body of knowledge. Provide complete citations for the articles and sources you used in your literature review. Use the filename (no spaces): yourlastname_wk4.doc to upload this file to the HW4 assignment. The Week 4 Review of Literature Assignment is due Sunday of Week 4. The assignment must follow APA guidelines (parenthetical citations) and be free of typographical, spelling and grammatical errors. Compliance with the above directions, quality of your analysis, and the SSGS Assignment Rubric for 500-600 Level Classes will be used to evaluate this assignment.
