Goal: Conduct a review of scholarly literature for an important classroom issue, e.g., motivation. Select 3 studies related to your specific area of focus (expressed in Part 1: Initial Reflection) to review.
Background: A literature review aims to uncover the scholarly perspective. Theory and data in literature may support and/or conflict with the researcher’s personal perspective.
What is the design of each study?
What does each study claim and what evidence supports the claim?
For each of the 3 studies, include a preliminary conclusion about factors that may influence student engagement/disengagement based on your literature review.
Explain how the literature connects to your beliefs about the issue. Relate to your area of focus.
