Note

You will be submitting the literature review section of your final paper for feedback. There is no explicit word count for this exercise, but you will need to fully develop and explain themes in your research that will provide background information for your topic.

Remember that you are not writing about each of your sources separately. You are not focusing on each individual source. Instead, you are focusing on the themes and patterns in the research you have gathered that provide background information on your topic.

Unlike the annotated bibliography, you are not only allowed but encouraged to use quotes or paraphrase your sources. There should be in-text citations in your writing.

Even though your focus is to provide background information to your reader and this section is largely informative, you want to make sure that the sources do not speak for you. Paraphrasing and using quotes is absolutely appropriate, but please make sure that you are relying mostly on your own interpretation of the information. Most of your writing should still be your own and not totally dependent on your sources.
