Students are individually responsible for writing a short literature review on the topic of Youth Suicide. This review must be a minimum of 1,500 words, including a title page, abstract, and reference page.
For this literature review, it is important for students to show their knowledge about the research topic.
This literature review is different from an annotated bibliography, which is a listing of articles with descriptions. A critical review is not a string of summaries, it is a synthesized review. In other words, students do not simply write a short review of each research study, but tie the research studies together into a story or conversation..
This process requires some insight and interpretation, not evaluation. Keep in mind that personal opinions are not included in a literature review.
Report what is relevant to your study and ignore what is not. This means you need to read the abstract, the introduction and conclusion of your articles. And, for long articles, focus on the parts that relate to your topic.
**At the end of the literature review, you will also need to write a two-paragraph summary of what you have learned about the topic from the three articles. This includes critique and reflection about the story, not the individual articles.**
Avoid long quotes in your review, and paraphrase whenever possible.
Maximum quotes = 2 short quotes (less than 40 words each).
Do not quote/cite secondary sources in the readings
Correct APA formatting is also required double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman font, 1 inch margins all around, APA in-text citations and a reference page. Run spelling and grammar checks and double-check your APA formatting. Be sure to CITE your sources throughout the review.
