Literary Review

Select an interest that you would like to expand.

Narrow that to a topic that relates to your interest.

Then ask a few questions about the topic of interest.

Ask the what for, why, when, who with, or any other question that you may think of when developing your initial topic of interest.

Your research strategy

Your Research Strategy

  • Gather about 5 articles from your initial search.

  • See if any are written by the same author, or if when you began, one author wrote multiple times on the subject.

  • Save that author, they’re probably the authority.

  • Bounce of their bibliography for sources.

Literary review

  • Write out an outline of what you are reviewing.

  • For example it may be in outline format.

    Alcohol abuse by children of alcoholics.

  • Types of Alcoholics

    1. Binge Drinkers

    2. Sneaking Drinkers

    3. Everyday Drinkers

    1. etc

    2. etc.

    3. etc.

Literary review

  • Maybe you work better with a visual outline.

Structure of your essay

Structure of your Essay

  • Design it like an expanded 5 paragraph essay.

  • Take the time to construct a well defined topic sentence that acts as a thesis statement.

  • Break it into the parts that you will describe in the following paragraphs.

  • If there are 3 major areas you are examining, then your body would be 3 paragraphs.

  • Your conclusion should then restate your opening and relate to the body of your work.

  • Your paper will be 12 to 15 pages.

  • Since you will be writing more, just go into greater detail with your topic and it will naturally extend itself.

  • Work on it in chunks. Say a page a day or two and you will see once you start you’ll knock out a couple pages each time you spend an hour on it.

  • You are required to include an abstract, which is an overview of your paper that is after your title page.

Your bibliography

Your Bibliography
