Project #40648 - Literature Review on the No Child Left Behind

This is just a general description of the project please see attachments 

Literature Review At this point you have picked a topic that is of interest to you No child Left Behind. You have also found and analyzed at least 12 academic sources see attached.   The next step will be preparing a thorough “Literature Review” that provides a comprehensive look at the sources you have found so far.

 

The Literature Review will provide a comprehensive look at how the sources relate to each other and to the discipline/topic.  What patterns are made clear by examining this source material?  Are there conflicts represented within the research?  What are the dominant trends in the material so far?  Of course, all of these questions can’t be answered in the thesis but they provide questions that help to develop the overall essay; the main idea is that the thesis needs to have a comprehensive point of view regarding the sources.  The essay is not a summary of sources but an analytical look at how they work together in creating a “picture” of the discipline/topic.

 

I have provided you with an example that indicates a thesis for a hypothetical essay looking at psychiatric medications:

 

 "The current state of research into the use of psychological medications indicates that most practitioners believe that medication must be supplemented by counseling in order to make therapy entirely successful. However, there remains a strong strand of research that indicates that medication alone may be successful in cases of specific disorders like depression and OCD."

 

This statement would be an effective starting point for a literature review essay. The remainder of the essay would examine in detail these different strands of research and how they relate to each other.  A thesis might also offer a final statement of evaluation such as (for this case)

 

 “It is clear from these conflicts regarding medication that professionals still do not know whether psychiatric disorders result from biological or environmental factors.” 

 

 

Another example, taken from a hypothetical paper concerning literature taken from the area of film criticism/studies:

 

“Critics are divided on the question of how effectively Avatar (director: James Cameron, 2009) provides a critique of environmental destruction and imperialism.  For many commentators the story of the Navi people successfully parallels and underscores stories of the real exploitation of indigenous peoples (such as Native Americans, aborigines, etc.). However, other critics ultimately feel that the film’s strong message is undercut by conventional storytelling and unsuccessful film-making techniques.  Ultimately, perhaps the strongest message I take from the range of criticism is that Avatar is an ambitious failure, highly popular but confused in its themes and presentation.”  

 

Basic Requirements:
