Proposal Milestone One: Draft of Literature Review (100 points)
Description: The main text of this assignment is a Draft of Literature Review in which you present a synthesized summary of each research article listed within the References section. While writing summaries, start with research articles (resources) that provide background information for your research topic, then move to resources that help you define variables of interest, and finally to resources that have investigated somewhat similar problems, but indicate a gap in the research. Use separate paragraph for the summary of each resource. Please paraphrase the ideas in the summaries. Refrain from using direct quotes. Provide in-text or parenthetical citations in APA style. You may find summaries of resources either by reading the Abstract or the Conclusion section. The References section must include at least 15 research articles or other scholarly resources (published in the last 15-20 years) listed in APA style.
Instructions: Please write your name and research topic in the spaces provided below. Your research topic must be written with clarity and should contain 15 or less words. Prepare this assignment in APA style. Specifically, use 1 inch margin all around, 12-point Times New Roman font style, and double line-spacing. Please begin the Draft of Literature Review on the second page. After you are done with the summaries of resources, start References section on a new page.
