INTS 3310: Lesson 6 Assignment 1: Literature Review
An interdisciplinary literature review should be an original examination and analysis of the scholarly literature on a particular topic, from more than one disciplinary point of view. Be sure to review the resources in the course related to the literature review and the rubric for this assignment.
You should begin this paper with a cover letter followed by an abstract. The abstract is a brief summary of your paper – usually under 250 words. The abstract stands alone on a page. It tells the reader what your paper is about and what you found. The OWL site gives you more information about how to write an abstract. The abstract is NOT your introductory paragraph. Elements you should include in your abstract include: a statement of the problem you are investigating; the criteria you used for the literature you chose; types of research used in those studies; your method of analysis; and your conclusions.
After the Abstract you need a page break.
The next page begins with your introductory paragraph. There is no heading used for the introduction. The introductory paragraph(s) discusses the purpose of the paper, and a summary of where you are going with the paper. You will identify the two disciplines you are using here. You should write this paragraph last. The CUNY article you have already read gives a great description of this and is a valuable resource.
The actual literature review should include the information about the disciplinary perspective of each source. Start with a brief [1-2 sentences] discussion of why you are looking at the literature in this discipline for information to answer your research question. The next few paragraphs should have your literature review for this discipline. These paragraphs should come from your Annotated Bibliography. Assuming that you did that paper correctly this should be pretty straight forward. Be sure to incorporate any feedback you were given to improve each segment. Of course, you will not just copy and paste your annotation – that is just the foundation for your writing. The CUNY article will help you understand how to develop this. Review the article you have been provided and it will help you turn your annotated bib into a literature review. Be sure to incorporate the feedback you received on your Annotated Bib and talk about the phenomena that will influence your study and why you think they matter. Sub-headings for each discipline will help give your paper more structure, I expect them. Under no circumstances should you leave your APA reference listing in the section!
This will probably be at least a paragraph for each source. If you are having issues turning your Annotated Bib into a Literature Review rewatch the videos provided in Lesson 6.

- a cover page
