Module 2 SLP:

 

In the Session Long Project (SLP), the goal is to complete an 7- to 9-page paper on a topic of interest that is directly related to your concentration. There are four components to the SLP, and you will complete one component within each module.

Students are expected to incorporate any instructor feedback into each assignment. Instructor feedback received on your SLP 1 should be incorporated into your SLP 2.

SLP Assignment

SLP 1 included:

  1. Introduction: Identify the Topic (1 page)
  2. Statement of the Problem (1/2 page)
  3. Guiding Question(s) and Strategy (1 page)
  4. Reference List

SLP 2 includes:

  1. Introduction: Identify the Topic (revised)
  2. Statement of the Problem (revised)
  3. Guiding Question(s) and Strategy (revised)
  4. Literature Review (3 – 4 pages)
  5. Reference List

Conduct a literature review of 8 or more scholarly articles related to the topic/issue you have identified for your SLP. Please do not confuse a literature review with an annotated bibliography (a list of references). The literature review should be a discussion of the related literature, organized by topic or themes (not a “list” of the articles).

A literature review includes synthesis, analysis, and critique of scholarly articles, textbooks, or other sources.

There is a helpful Module 2 reading that can guide you through the development of a literature review:

Chapter 5: Analyzing and categorizing the Literature Critically
Chapter 6: The Structure of the Literature Review
