HW: Make revisions to lit review at least 7 pages typed for next class BRING THREE PRINTED COPIES, MENTOR INFO DUE 9/10 (A) and 9/11 (B)
Lit Review Tips:
- Avoid the statement "This article is about..." --> "the goal of the research" "the purpose of the study" "the data shows"
- General format for writing up one previous study article summary (do not include these headings)
-Purpose of the study
-The study's hypothesis- "the researchers hypothesized" "the hypothesis for this study was"
-Study conclusions- be very detailed
-Relevance to your study- avoid "this study is relevant" --> "this study provides background" "this
study provides methods"
- Avoid the statement "the researchers looked at" --> "the researchers examined" "the researchers studied" "the researchers explored"... be creative with your word choice- a Thesaurus may be helpful
- Lit review sections:
-Background- should include primary (previous study) and secondary (general background info)
-Hypothesis- the hypothesis for YOUR study, should be justified with support from background
-Justification- what does your study add to current research, how is it international?
