Literature Review (3-4 pages)
This review asks you to synthesize your reading. In a few short pages, tell me what you read, why and what you took from it. Do not summarize the readings! Instead, tell me what holds them together (ex. “these authors share the same perspective on sterilization consent”). This is your opportunity to tell me what you learned. You will be evaluated on the logic of your text selection, your rationale for text selection, your ability to synthesize the information you find and your skill at communicating the connections, areas of agreement/disagreement or different approaches in the body of your texts.
On March 16th, you will be placed in a group and you will teach your group about your topic. This is a moment for you to communicate your research to an audience that is unfamiliar with your topic. After you’ve taught the group, the group has the opportunity to ask you questions and discuss your topic. You will hand-in your preparatory notes.
