Conduct a literature review of your topic. Find at least 5 scholarly journal articles, 2 books, and 1 website that detail research or information about some aspect of your topic (these numbers are a minimum; to achieve the highest points possible, go beyond the minimum by having at least 10 total references in at least 3 different mediums — i.e. journal articles, books, websites, newspaper articles, dissertation studies, etc). The idea behind a literature review is to build a case for your topic being relevant. What do we already know about the topic? What foundational research is out there that is being used to drive instruction and/or policy?
Your tasks:1. Read each item (books you may have to do a “quick read”.2. Write a short summary of the research and the findings.3. Discuss implications toward your research topic.
Your literature review will be submitted as an Annotated Bibliography, following APA format. (See attached example).
