The Literature Review provides the background for the research problem and illustrates to the reader that the researcher is knowledgeable about the scope of the topic. Use the information you developed in your annotated bibliography to tell a story about your research topic/problem. When actually writing the literature review, you may need to add additional resources to fill in any gaps you may encounter in your resources.
Choose one evident theme or that became apparent when researching the topic. Briefly share the results of the various scholarly resources you compiled in your annotated bibliography, including the most pertinent information such as the hypotheses, population, methodology, and results, etc. Relate the resources to an ongoing dialogue of the literature pertaining to the research topic. This means that each resource listed should relate to your research topic in some way. Report the studies sequentially if possible, building upon the findings of prior studies. Remember to separate each category of studies with a new subheading. Do this as many times as needed.
