A 13 page literature review, not including a cover page, references, and an abtract. I will attach a reference page of some of the sources I have found on this topic, and an article critque that I have submitted on this topic as well MY TOPIC IS HOW THE O CHILD LEFT BEHIND ISNT WORKING. A literature review is a synthesized research report on a specific topic, in your case it would be your area of focus. Synthesized is not summary, it means you are reading and discussing diverse aspects of your study. You begin with an introduction of your subject and then subheadings on the same subject. So, if you are discussing lack of student motivation - it would a general overview flack of student motivation (history, who is mainly impacted, percentage of population, what effects and social issues exist due to this, then you move on to subheadings - main theoretical frameworks, theorists, studies, interventions, what has worked, what hasn't worked, implications for the future, conclusion). Remember, you are not summarizing but synthesizing - that is reading and discussing it in third person objective in an intelligent and scholarly way. The literature review is a part of your final focus paper but what you must submit this week is a summarized literature review consisting of at least 15 sources that you have identified to help you justify and provide a framework for your concept paper and action research. Please note the APA formatting, the reference page, abstract, etc. I have attached the guidelines for the literature below, as well as other resources for you.
