. Literature review (20 points):

a. Have you summarized at least six pieces of literature?

b. Is the reviewed literature recent (past five years)? If you are reviewing older literature
please offer some justification for including it; for example, you might include an older
article because it is a classic in the field or because it is especially germane to your topic.

c. Have you hooked your reviews together in some meaningful way? The transition from one
summary to the next should be smooth.

d. Have you given a clear indication as to how each article is relevant to your topic and
research questions?

e. Are complete in-text citations provided? Do complete citations appear on the works cited
page?
