slide1

Research Synthesis

Telling what research says about your topic.

slide2

Research Synthesis

Does not include your opinion until the very end (conclusion).

Your opinion MUST be based on the research cited.

slide3

Research Synthesis

Start by collecting information on your topic.

Be sure it is research (not newspaper articles, magazines vs. journals, sales information).

slide4

Research Synthesis

Read EVERYTHING, and start looking for common themes (these become your subheadings).

slide5

Possible Themes

  • Definition (s)
  • Characteristics
  • Types
  • Advantages/Disadvantages
  • Classroom Applications
  • Methods
slide6

Research Synthesis

Start looking for statements that AGREE—you want more than one source for statements.

A synthesis—not a summary!

slide7

Research Synthesis

Writing comes much later—the hard part is pulling it together first.

slide8

Research Synthesis

Start a section at a time—start with something easy (like definition).

You are simply saying what OTHERS have already said—you are just presenting it in a different way.

slide9

Research Synthesis

Since you are simply telling what someone else has said, you must provide a source (or sources) for EVERYTHING.

If you quote directly, put it in quotes. If you paraphrase, you still have to cite the author(s).

slide10

Research Synthesis

Don’t use:

Lists and lists and lists!

slide11

Research Synthesis

This is a VERY different type of writing—and it is hard! Don’t get frustrated.

slide12

Research Synthesis

Mix in tables, charts, graphs, quotes.

slide13

Research Synthesis

  • You need at least 15 sources, more is better.
  • Don’t forget to use APA style.
slide14

Research Synthesis

Do NOT put your opinion in the paper until the conclusion!

Conclusion
