Welcome AP 11 and Ms. Reimer.
Ms. Reimer and I are trying something new. We thought AP 11 would be a great class to work on this.
We will learn about and write a literature review. A literature review is a discovery and exploration of published information on a particular subject, theme or text. It is a collection of academic secondary sources to help deepen your understanding of a primary text. For this particular assignment, your primary texts are The Importance of Being Earnest and Oedipus Rex.
These secondary sources include academic journals, magazines, newspapers, critical essays and encyclopedias. While you might find these materials in print; most likely, they are housed in subscription databases. Our library learning commons subscribes to small collection of databases. For this particular assignment, you will need to start your discovery with Academic Search Premier and Student Resources in Context. As always, please note that these pages and resources require usernames and passwords.
The review will provide a content summary and relational synthesis to the primary text being studied. This summary and synthesis will be 300 words. In addition, each secondary source you choose to use will need to cited in proper MLA (Modern Languages Association) format. This is easily done by referring to our bibliography guides or by locating the provided formatting at the end of the online articles from journals, encyclopedias and essays.
Furthermore, to help you structure literature review paragraphs please refer to our online guide to integrating quotations into academic writing.
As always, you are invited to see me before the due of this assignment and I will provide formative feedback that you can them incorporate into your finished product.
By now, you are prepared to EXPRESS your learning from the notes your CONSTRUCTED from your reading.
