Ensure to follow ALL directions and complete within 24 hours. NO plagiarism. Use ALL attachements. Attachments include references and topic of what the paper will eventually be able.

Complete Literature Review (Scaffold Step #3). Review references and consider the extent to which you drew upon a diverse collection of studies. Remember, your literature review will not advocate for or against a particular position, and should not reflect personal opinions, beliefs, or values. What have you discovered in terms of themes, trends, and opportunities for further research? Is your list of articles both broad in scope and up to date (current)? If you’re using older studies (<10% of total sources), will you be able to draw explicit connections between those historical studies and contemporary theory and practice?

Please develop first draft. As you’re working, ask yourself: have you constructed a framework that will illustrate the extent of your understanding of current research related to your topic? Is your draft appropriately organized to present diverse arguments and themes? Have you avoided advocating for or against a particular position? Have you omitted personal opinions, beliefs, or values from your draft? Is your working thesis statement still effective, or does it need to be adapted to reflect the overall work?

The compressed nature of this Capstone does not allow you enough time to extend your literature review into identifying new opportunities for research. Instead, we ask you to conclude your literature review with a summation (in your own words) of the most prominent research and findings related to your topic. You must substantiate your summation by drawing upon well-reasoned evidence from the journal articles included in your literature review and explaining how these findings contribute to the collective knowledge in your field of study.

Depending on the number of scholarly sources used, your literature review should be approximately 2,000-2,500 words, and should not exceed 3,000 words. (Word counts exclude title pages, headers, and reference list.)

This step establishes the foundation for your final research paper and is consequently of vital importance to your overall success in the Capstone. Review, reorganize, revise, and rewrite until you’ve demonstrated the level of scholarship expected of a degree-seeking candidate.
