This is a research paper that must include information from my research proposal, and use information from my annotated bibliography. I have already begun trying to write the paper but it needs a lot of work. I have separated them into categories that I think should exist but I am not married to them. The literature review is stated to be worth half of the paper so it must be solid. I need a great opening for the paper that really captures the audience so if you can create that, I would greatly appreciate it. Must be apa format.
This is what is stated that is needed for the lit review: Your literature review will survey scholarly
articles, books, and other sources relevant to your research question. The
review should enumerate, describe, summarize, objectively evaluate and
clarify this previous research. It should give a theoretical base for the
research and help you (the author) refine and revise your research
question, claims, and arguments. The literature review acknowledges the
work of previous researchers and assures the reader that your work has
been well conceived. You will be asked to include a reference list with a
minimum of 15 sources for your literature review.
