Task:Write a component of the Literature Review for a doctoral dissertation. Study: The study aims to investigate how elementary school principals use communication technologies to engage parents in the child’s education. The research question is:In an elementary school where communication strategies are well-established, how does theprincipal utilize and adapt a diverse array of communication technologies to engage parents in their child’s education?These subquestions guide the study:How does the elementary principal influence their school’s implementation and use of a variety of communication technologies to enhance the engagement of parents in their child’s education? How do elementary principals seek and incorporate parental expectations for school communications?What communications do parents expect from their child’s elementary school?How do parents access, make sense of and use the various communications received fromschools?There are three main parts to the Literature Review (so far). The draft of the first is attached in another document to provide a sampling of my writing style and the expectations for the amount of quotes. It is by no means perfect, just a start. This outline is provided to help you understand where I am going with the study and to help prioritize and focus your use of research to support the entire study within the designated section you are writing.

It will require finding additional research to support each area as well as taking some of the ideas I started with and reworking them into appropriate dissertation level writing—a summary of the literature. Here’s the outline I’m currently considering:1.Basic Intro—mch of what I have in this section can work. The stacked quotes are important in this section. I want this section to note that this topic has been extensively studied and shows numerous benefits, but there’s not much research on the ‘how’ to implement it.
