Post this assignment by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module 7: Week 7. Provide at least 25 peer-reviewed articles, and at least one Scripture reference. GUIDELINES Keep these areas of focus in sight when writing the Literature Review Assignment • Focus on the research question—The centerpiece of this course is the Literature Review Assignment, and the centerpiece of the assignment is the research question, how existing scholarship informs that question, and where your research question fits in the body of scholarship, past and present. • Focus on peer-reviewed research—The focus of this assignment is on peer-reviewed sources found primarily in academic journals. You need to find out where your research fits in the framework of existing scholarship. • Focus on the endgame—Provide a discussion of the literature that demonstrates the gap in existing research pertaining to your research question and how your research can fill that gap. • Focus on synthesis, not just analysis—With analysis, you will review each article and look at the different parts (research question, hypotheses, variables, findings, etc.); with synthesis, you will use those parts and organize them to discuss how the literature informs your research question. • Focus on organizing around concepts, not studies—Your organization for preparation for the literature review assignment is to review one article and then the next article. However, do not write the literature review that way. Rather, organize the major headings around the most important concepts related to your question, not around articles. As you organize your concepts, use the language of relationship and comparison/contrast to show the connections within the concepts and between the concepts.
