Drafting lit review

  1. 1. Drafting a Literature Review
  2. 2. What did you learn from Bullock? <ul><li>Summarize </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on topic/argument </li></ul><ul><li>Cluster </li></ul><ul><li>Subheadings > Generalization > Summary of main ideas of sources > Analysis </li></ul>
  3. 3. Sample Lit Review <ul><li>Subject headings </li></ul><ul><li>Topic generalizations </li></ul><ul><li>Mix of integral and non-integral citations </li></ul><ul><li>Making connections between sources </li></ul>
  4. 4. Clustering <ul><li>Write down the last names of the authors of each of your sources. </li></ul><ul><li>Write down 3-5 keywords for each source. </li></ul><ul><li>Share with a partner. Look for common keywords. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Clustering <ul><li>Out of your keywords, choose 4-6 that might make good subject headings. </li></ul><ul><li>Share with a partner; choose the best or most relevant headings. </li></ul><ul><li>Under each heading, list all the sources that apply. </li></ul><ul><li>Create a color code for each heading. </li></ul><ul><li>Highlight your annotated bib to sort out quotes and summaries that you may be able to reuse. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Drafting <ul><li>Choose one of your subject headings. </li></ul><ul><li>Write a generalization about this heading. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example from a student writing about teaching learning-disabled children to write: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ The impediment associated with the composing process of students with learning disabilities can be somewhat relieved by using text-recording tools, such as special keyboards, word prediction, and speech recognition. ” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Her subject heading was “ T ext-Recording Tools .” This topic generalization clearly introduces the main ideas that she will cover in this paragraph. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It may help to use non-integral citations to connect sources. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Share. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Drafting <ul><li>Get more specific, using non-integral citations to make connections between sources. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Many scholars discuss the benefits of word processing programs such as Microsoft Word (MacArthur; Lewis). </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Drafting <ul><li>Summarize the main argument of one of your sources. Feel free to borrow from your annotated bib. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: More specifically, Lewis explains that special keyboards, such as IntelliKeys, enable the user to program the keyboard to appear in any order that is desired (19). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Share. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Drafting <ul><li>Now summarize another source, showing the connection between them. (Create a “conversation.”) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Lewis defines speech recognition software, or voice-input, as software that recognizes the voice of the user and records the words as text (19). According to MacArthur, dictation and speech recognition can be very beneficial to students with difficulty in basic writing skills but the limitations of speech recognition software are much greater than dictating to a human. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Share. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Drafting <ul><li>Repeat the process for each of your sources you listed under your subject heading. </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporate quotes where necessary or relevant. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember to show the connections. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Drafting <ul><li>Now pull all the threads together: identify the areas of agreement and disagreement, and use them to support your argument. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Both MacArthur and Lewis indicate that word prediction software was created for individuals with physical disabilities, but MacArthur claims that the benefits of word prediction technology is promising for students with severe disabilities in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Drafting <ul><li>Repeat for each of your subject headings. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Intro and conclusion <ul><li>Intro </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use what you have from annotated bib </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Refer to your subject headings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Point vaguely to gaps </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sum everything up </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify gaps in more detail </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This will eventually be the transition into your own research </li></ul></ul>
