Authors whose nonfiction works you admire

Reflect on two authors whose nonfiction works you admire or respect and could possibly use as sources in a research study.

Mark Twain’s “The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg”

Read Mark Twain’s “The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg” (Links to an external site.)

What ethical approaches does Mark Twain apply in his short story.

Hadleyburg’s solution to their lack of ethical understanding is to increase the number of ethical conundrums faced. Are there other ways to fix the problem that Hadleyburg represents?

Can we learn ethical behavior without resorting to, or being exposed to, unethical behavior? Can there be good without evil? Can there be ethics without encountering a lack of ethics? Does an innocent child have to lose that innocence in order to act ethically? Is there a place for innocence in the modern world?

The best literature reviews

Things to know: The best literature reviews are not individual summaries of articles; rather, they are a combined synthesis. In scholarly writing, to synthesize means to bring various ideas and pieces of information together. In this “bringing together,” new comparisons are drawn and new meanings derived. So, even though you are reporting on information in four different articles, you are also molding that information into a new and unique story you are telling about the research topic.

For a visual, you might think about each piece of information within a theme as a strand of yarn or rope. You weave those strands together, put them against each other, twist them, and eventually you come up with a beautiful shape. In the literature review, this “weaving” looks like comparing, contrasting, and analyzing the articles in relationship to one another and the social work profession.

In this Assignment, you write a short literature review on your research topic, keeping the principle of synthesis in mind.

Submit a 2-page literature review demonstrating what is known about your topic and any identified gaps. The literature review must include at least four of the peer-reviewed research articles you found.

At the end of your literature review, write 1 to 2 paragraphs answering the following question:

· How will you change, refine, or focus your research question based on your exploration of the literature? Provide justification.
