I’m working on a research proposal. The purpose of this study is to examine if there is a relationship
between implementing a class wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support Approach (PBIS) and its effect on the student’s academic achievement while enrolled in a middle
school math class. These are possible research questions: Research
Questions
1. How does Positive Intervention Support Approach relate to the academic achievement in middle school math?
2. Is there a relationship implementing a
Positive Intervention Supports Approach and the academic achievement of middle
school Math students?
3. Will there be any increase in the
students academic achievement when implementing a Positive Intervention What is the best approach for a middle school age math class?
For this assignment keep the following guidelines:
Note: The purpose and research questions may be edited for best results.
Literature Review Outline
– Sample
Introduction
Describe
the overall topic that you have been investigating, why it is important
to the field, and why you are interested in the topic.
Identify
themes and trends in research questions, methodology, and findings. Give
a “big picture” of the literature.
Theme
A[1]
Overview
of characteristics of the theme (commonalities, differences, nuances)
Sub-theme
– narrow but grouped findings related to the theme
i. Study
1 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
ii. Study
2 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
iii. Study
3 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
Sub-theme
– narrow but grouped findings related to the theme
i. Study
4 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
ii. Study
5 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
iii. Study
6 (Research question(s), Methods/Participants, Related Findings)
Etc.,
etc., etc. with other findings that fit Theme A; studies can be repeated
if there are multiple findings that fit under more than one theme.
However, no need to re-write methods/participants in detail (just enough
to remind the reader about the study).
Theme
B – follow a, b, c, and so on from above
Keep
repeating with themes
Conclusion:
An
evaluation/critique of the existing literature. Write several paragraphs.
What
are the contributions of this literature to the field?
What
are the overall strengths?
What
are the overall weaknesses?
What
might be missing?
What
are some next steps for research? The next steps should explicitly
address how to “correct” for strengths, weaknesses, and gaps.

Remember: The theme is a broad word or phrase that synthesizes a more narrow
group of related findings. E.g., a theme of “Resistance” would include types of
resistance, resistance to whom, resisting what, etc.
