Literature Review Prompt

Literature reviews are necessary in any lengthy scholarly writing, especially senior papers, theses, and dissertations. Students should know the basics of literature reviews before contributing new work to their specific disciplines. Literature reviews go over research that has already been completed in order to provide a backdrop for the student’s research, proof that the student is knowledgeable on said topic, and is, in fact, writing a new contribution to the research within their discipline. Writing a literature review will also help students find most of their resources, perform their research, and ensure that they are paving a “new path” within their discipline before they waste ample time only to discover their topic has already been heavily researched and/or discussed.

Assignment:

· Students will choose any topic for this assignment (this will prepare you for your final assignment so make sure you are writing about something that interests you and has plenty of academic sources!).

· The paper should include multiple sources about your topic, why each source is important (or not), and how they contribute to said topic.

· Students must read the following link in its entirety: (this will be extremely helpful!)

scholarly sources
, including scholarly journals or books (websites outside of academic journals, YouTube videos, movies, and other similar sources do not count). Use a minimum of 3 sources (this assignment is resource-heavy so students will more than likely use more). I will mark off points for any sources that are not from an academic journal, academic meeting, or academic book.
