USC Upstate English 102 Paper 3 – Literature Review Purpose The purpose of this paper is to prepare you for your capstone project in which you will make a proposal to help alleviate a social problem you have identified. Before making a sound proposal, you have to first understand what a proposal is, second, thoroughly research the literature (in this case, “literature” means scholarly articles and other credible information from a variety of media that address your topic). Suggested Process 1. Identify the problem and provide minimal background. 2. Identify the stakeholders. 3. Research one opinion on the topic or one proposal to solve it. 4. Discuss what the objections have been raised. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you feel you have a representative sample of the opinions in the literature). 6. Organize these opinions in a logical fashion – do not simply write about them as you find articles. Consider how the authors “speak to each other” through their work. 7. Include an Annotated Bibliography of Works Cited and Consulted.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
