dissertation, locate the literature review (typically Chapter 2) and mine it by
constructing an outline of it. Use the given headings as Roman numerals and the
subheadings as capital letters in your outline. Follow standard APA outlining
format to add additional levels of detail.

author in one column and a broad topic in a second column is an excellent way
to preserve this information.

summary (125-250 words) of the literature reviews you mined to submit along
with your outlines and author/topic list that you created. Address the
following questions about the literature reviews you have just mined:

dissertations? Are they organized chronologically, thematically, or in some
other form (if other, identify)? Why might the researcher have chosen this
organizational structure?


you observe the content of the three studies, what common ideas (themes) do you


do these themes relate to your dissertation topic?
