Introduction to Literature Review
The focus of a literature review is to summarize and synthesize arguments and ideas without adding new contributions. There are many different types of lit reviews that range from a simple summary of sources to tracing intellectual progression in the field or discipline. You can talk with your professor and look at sample literature reviews for your topic to get a sense of how to organize it and what to report.
Once you have formulated a thesis statement, pick a few keywords that best describe your topic. These will be the words we use to start researching your topic.
Example statement: How can I get my parents to give me money? or What are the factors that have shown will convince/force parents to give their children money?
Keywords: money and parent, age group: young adulthood
