I HAVE ATTACHED ALL DOCUMENTS REGARDING THIS· TOPIC INCLUDING MY ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY, FOUR SOURCE ESSAY, AND SIX SOURCE ESSAY! PLEASE USE THESE TO FINISH THIS ASSIGNMENT!
MY TOPIC IS ADHD AMONG COLLEGE STUDENTS!
Task: The multiple-source essay asks you to synthesize the arguments of at least 10
· Length: 2000-3000 words
· Format: APA
Sources: a total of at least 10 sources, all of which should be from scholarly journals or
credible trade journals. You should find your sources through library searches.
o If you cite sources from websites or popular journals, these sources should be in
addition to the 10 sources you have cited from scholarly or trade journals.
· Topic: Please use the same topic that you used for writing assignment #3. It is
recommended that you focus on or expand on the essay that you wrote for writing
assignment #3. You will continue with the topic you have selected and will conduct
additional searches in the library databases, hopefully focus the topic more, and
determine the 10 or more sources to use in this essay. Please note that this is a review
of the literature on a topic. It is not a persuasive essay using sources to support a point.
Rather it is an overview of the current research on a topic
· Integration of Sources: At least eight sources must be cited in the body of the essay.
You may cite sources in your introduction to help you define terms, and you may cite
sources in your conclusion to help you direct the reader to further inquiry. However, the
body of the essay should synthesize at least 8 sources.
Strategies in Developing the Topic for this Essay
Up to this point in the semester, you have completed an annotated bibliography. You have also
incorporated and synthesized four sources into writing assignment #2 and six sources into
writing assignment #3. The work you have completed for these assignments provides a solid
Strategies in Developing the Topic for this Essay
foundation for writing assignment #4. In this assignment you will synthesize the ideas of at least
10 sources in a synthesis essay, or literature review
For your annotated bibliography, you selected a topic based on your interests and, possibly, your
major. You constructed a list of five references and summarized and critically analyzed them in
150-200 words each. You then completed the four-source essay and the six-source essay.
Through this process, you may have seen patterns in the scholarly literature in the topic on which
you conducted research. For example, consider the following examples: Through this process, you may have seen patterns in the scholarly literature in the topic on which
you conducted research. For example, consider the following examples:
• You may have researched studies in criminal justice and found that there are varying opinions on
how to respond to criminal behavior among youth.
• ·You may have researched studies in psychology and found that counseling strategies for victims
of domestic abuse tend to fall into four categories.
• ·You may have researched articles on gerontology and found studies that answered three basic
questions on how older adults respond to training for physical performance.
• ·You may have researched articles on environmental management and found studies on climate
change. You noticed that various demographic factors influence whether individuals believe in
climate change and, if so, whether they believe it is caused by human activity
In the synthesis essay, you will focus your research efforts in a particular area, perhaps as a
response to what you found while writing the annotated bibliography and in constructing the
four-source and six-source essays. You will then conduct more research and synthesize your
findings in this literature review.
Please note that the annotated bibliography, the four-source essay, and the six-source essay
represent a journey in your research
You might decide to disregard several of the articles you analyzed in the critical annotated
bibliography or in the following two essays because they don’t speak to the specific area on
which you have decided to write your multiple-source literature review. You might select one
article that you analyzed in the critical annotated bibliography, look up the articles cited in that
article, and “snowball” your research in that way.
In other words, this process is a recursive one. You might find reasons to hone in on and narrow
your topic even further after you have written the annotated bibliography
For these reasons, you are strongly encouraged to write on the same general topic on which you
wrote writing assignment #3. You might focus the topic more for writing assignment #4. Or you
might expand on the topic for writing assignment #4
How to organize the multiple-source essay:
You will divide the essay into categories. Each category will be labelled with a heading
Point of view
For this essay, you will use third-person point of view.
Please do not use first person point of view (e.g., “I,” “me,” “we”) in writing this essay.
In addition, please do not use second-person point of view (“you” or “your”) in writing this
essay. For example, instead of “Smith argues that, as a director, you have a duty to coordinate
cybersecurity efforts…” you would write, “Smith argues that directors have a duty to coordinate
The paper should be formatted in APA style. The link “APA 7th edition example student paper” from
Week 3 will be a helpful resource. In summary, you should observe the following:
· Use one-inch margins.
· Double space.
· Use size 12 Times New Roman font.
· Include a running head.
· Include page numbers.
· Include a title page.
· Include a “References” page on which you list the articles in APA style
· Do not include an abstract. This paper is not long enough to warrant an abstract.
