Literature Matrix Assignment: Research on Social Challenges

Identify a specific topic for your literature review. Also, make sure your topic is not too vague (e.g., “bullying” or “cognitive behavioral therapy”). Clearly state a topic, outcome, and also the population of interest for your paper. Example: The impact of X (topic) on Y (outcome/s) in Z (population). Additionally, Make sure your topic is realistic (meaning there is recent, reliable research on that topic), and within the realm of psychology.

Explain why you are selecting that topic. Additionally, give a clear justification for why the topic you selected fits with your future goals or interests. This explanation doesn’t need to be any longer than 2-5 sentences. Also, bring this information typed on one single page to class on 1/30. You will turn this into me, and we will meet briefly in class to discuss your topic one-on-one. This assignment is worth 10 points.  If you are unsure of what do to or which topic to pick, email me or message me.

Conduct a literature search for your chosen topic for this course and create a literature matrix (use the template available on myHeritage). This will be the first step of your capstone paper, so think critically about the sources you are including. Within the literature matrix, you will need to fill out critical information about each research article. Every Thursday I will ask students to show progress on their literature matrix in class.
