ENG 107: Synthesis and Research Writing Bloomfield College Professor Jennifer C. Guercio Unit 2 – Literature Review Purpose and Focus of Analysis In the preliminary stages of any significant research project, students and scholars are expected to carry out an extensive review of the literature relevant to their project. This is true in any discipline. Scholars and students are expected to know what accredited scholars and researchers have published on a subject. A literature review provides an analysis of this research. In this assignment, you will do a review of literature on a topic of current interest in an academic field.
As with all essays, you begin the development of this essay by generating lots of ideas. You may make one column in which you identify the points of comparison, another column in which you identify the points of contrast. Please refer to the bottom of page 254 and the top to middle of page 255 for an example. ORGANIZATION: POINT BY POINT OR WHOLE TO WHOLE I mentioned earlier that you may choose to organize your essay in a point-by-point format or in a whole-to-whole format. POINT BY POINT: In this format, you will first compare or contrast one point between two subjects and then move to the next point of comparing or contrasting between the two subjects.

Each student will post a presentation to the class discussion board and answer questions posed by peers.
Drafts: For essays and longer assignments, I will check to see that you have partial drafts and rough drafts on the days when they are due, and these will count for participation points. It is important that you bring those assigned partial and rough drafts to class when they are due so that you can take advantage of workshops and feedback to improve your work before the final draft is due. • Final drafts of essays are evaluated, in part, as good faith evidence of each student’s participation in the writing and learning processes. Thus, if the student writer has not brought rough drafts (partial or whole) to class workshops when due, or the student has not talked with me before the day that the final draft is due and produced those drafts, then I reserve the right not to accept the out-of-class essay final draft until these requirements have been met to my satisfaction.

The Academic Support Center Chesapeake College www.chesapeake.edu/asc/ 410-827-5854 Helpful Hints for Writing A Critique If you are asked to write a critique of an article or an essay assigned by your professor, you analyze the reading, identify your personal reaction to it, and develop a clear, concise explanation of support for your reaction. Your knowledge of the discipline in which you are working is the basis on which you build the explanation.

Underline any unfamiliar words as you read, but do not stop to look them up until you have finished reading. ♦ Look up the unfamiliar words, and then carefully and slowly read the article again.
