Research Proposal draft
Assignment 2: Research Proposal Draft
By Monday, May 8, 2017, write a (5–6 pages) paper addressing the sections below of the research proposal.
This week you will submit the Literature Review section of your proposal. Each week you have been adding to your growing body of evidence to support your problem and
proposed innovation to address the problem. The review of literature is a critical, analytical summary and synthesis of the current knowledge of your research topic.
Thus it should compare and relate different theories, findings, etc., rather than just summarize them individually.
