Please examine the sample synthesis literature review, “Employee Retention and Turnover.” (The essay can be found in the Week 3 Content area for sample papers and under the heading “Sample Papers.”)
Then answer the following questions:
1. Discuss how well the student has synthesized the sources (base your response on your review of the sample synthesis essays and the video located in the Content area for Weeks #2 and #3).
Note one area where synthesis was well done. Explain in a sentence or two why the synthesis was effective in this part of the paper.
Note one area where synthesis could have been improved. Explain in a few sentences why the synthesis was not particularly effective in this part of the paper.
2. Check to see if the student writer has provided at least one citation for every source listed in the references for the student’s paper. Note whether the student has done this successfully or has failed to cite any source(s). Why is citing all sources listed as references important?
