RQ3: Did the type of school—Title I or non-Title I—that ninth-grade African American male students attended make a difference in the extent to which their participation in co-curricular activities affected their literacy achievement; and if so, what was the nature of that difference¬¬?
Directions: You will be rewriting and adding on to Chapter II (Literature Review). I’ve had many revisions to this chapter, and now it must be official! I will request revisions to this chapter until it meets my expectations. Attached is a rough, unedited draft of Chapter II for you to use as a guide/ foundation to create the revised Chapter II. I’ve had assistance with this chapter before, but I AM NOT SATISFIED with the depth of writing and research with the draft. The draft is unacceptable! As currently written, some of the sections are vague, with little in-text citations, lack of connectivity to other sources, and depth. In addition, there has been many changes from the rough draft to the new draft you will write. All sections should be rich with research, by you linking several sources together (using as many of my cited sources from Chapter I & III), not just one reference. Strictly follow the outline below in order to make the necessary changes to the rough draft. In the outline below, some sections have notes in the parenthesis. Please pay attention to the notes in the parenthesis. Again, you will use the rough draft as a guide or foundation. Please read the attached Chapter I and III of my study, which will guide you on writing Chapter II. Look at how I used the references in Chapter I in the text, so that you can emphasize them more thoroughly in Chapter II. Under each section, I provided references that I used in Chapters I and III for you to review and use in Chapter II. However, you will have to find more references to add to your writing in some sections. You may use the references in Chapter II draft, but be very cautious since there are many errors in this unedited draft. Despite the errors in Chapter II, there is some good information under some of the headings that you can recycle in your writing. At the end of Chapter I and III, I included a reference section. In addition, there is a reference section at the end of Chapter II. Please use the references in Chapters I and III as much as you can, and only add new references if it is necessary. At the end, please provide a revised reference section to Chapter II. All references must be credible (peer-reviewed and scholarly articles, dissertations, theses, books, credible websites- with an author and copyright date- etc. All references MUST be between 2008 and 2015, unless you are referring to a theory.
1) Must use APA 6th edition style. Use proper formatting for sections/sub-headings.
2) References must be between the years 2008-2015, unless you are citing a theory/theorist
3) Online references without a source, author, and copyright cannot be used. Stay away from online references and use peer reviewed, scholarly articles, books, studies, etc. Remember to use my references from Chapters I & III.
4) Must write literature review in past tense, present perfect tense, or past perfect tense
5) Write in scholarly, standard English with proper grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation. Break it up in paragraphs- stay away from long sentences.
6) Must write around 30+ pages. If there are more pages you need to write, please let me know.
7) All sections and topics must be thoroughly written and well-researched. No short and vague paragraphs under headings.
8) Stay away from personal opinions and base everything on fact.
9) Use ‘co-curricular activities’ rather than ‘extracurricular activities’ and ‘African American’ rather than ‘Black’ throughout the literature review.
10) Do not write in passive voice. Write in active voice.
