In week 3 you conducted a lit erature revi ew using the course competencies as a guide in choosing the articles. For this week you will take that information and incorporate it into a final p aper. The p aper is not just the l iterature rev iew; it is a culmination of what you have learned over the course and as in week 3 use the course competencies as a guide to developing your p aper. attached is week 3 literature review.
Your p aper should adhere to the following g uidelines: For the main sections, it should have:
Introduction: This should be one to two p ages in length. The introduction provides a brief overview of what will be covered and the purpose of the research p aper.
Literature review: The literature review is taken in part from what you wrote in Week 3. The literature review is not a copy of that material. Rather, it is a synthesis of the material you found into a cohesive review of the literature on your chosen topic.
Discussion and conclusions: The difference between a great r esearch p aper and a marginal one is the depth and originality of the discussion and conclusions section. This is where you bring together what you learned from the literature review (as well as through the course) in your concluding remarks regarding your topic. The discussion and conclusions section should be one to two p ages in length.
