Literature Review Draft (10 points)
This assignment calls for you to submit a draft of your literature review. There will certainly be ongoing revisions, but you must meet the criteria outlined below for the first draft. Your text offers discussions of how to create and construct a literature review. I am personally a visual learner, so I prefer multiple aids when learning something new. Therefore, I’ve included multiple online resources that may help you to create your literature review.
