Applied Activity 2 – Secondary Methods [10%]
This activity will assess you on the material from learning outcome 2 “locate and select data using secondary research methods”.
You may not work with another student and/or collaborate on your answers. To do so would be considered cheating and would be a violation of Cambrian’s Academic Integrity policy.
In this applied activity you will create a small-scale literature review by following these step by step instructions:
Pick a general topic and write a research objective and research question (you should use the same research objective and question that you developed for Applied Activity 1. If you cannot find any relevant information for your topic, you may adjust your research objective and question as needed).
Find at least five (5) secondary sources that are relevant to your research question and of high quality (use the CRAAP test to evaluate the quality of sources) using the Cambrian College Library database and/or Google Scholar.
Based on these 5 or more references, write a literature review. Your literature review must contain the following:
i. Identify your topic.
ii. State your research objective that identifies WHY you are doing this research.
iii. State your research question that explains WHAT you want to learn.
• Body paragraph(s)
i. Give an overview of relevant sources including their research problem, methods, and conclusion.
ii. Synthesize by comparing, contrasting, and connecting your secondary sources while relating them back to the original research problem.
iii. If you examine multiple themes in your secondary sources, organize the review thematically so that each theme is within a paragraph.
i. Summarize the main findings from the secondary sources that you reviewed.
ii. Provides an answer to the original research question (or what information you were able to find to help you answer the question).
Make sure to appropriately cite material using in text citations and a References page.
