Assignment: Theoretical and Conceptual Frameworks
Last week, you spent some time searching for and reviewing research articles related to your topic. Now, you are asked to spend some time thinking about the theoretical or conceptual framework for your study. You may already have an idea of specific theories or concepts that relate to your topic. If so, begin thinking about what pieces—or aspects—of those theories or concepts relate most to your topic and will provide the basis for your study. Also, spend some time reviewing research articles that include one or more of the same variables that you are using, and identify the theoretical or conceptual frameworks that the authors use. Doing so may give you a clearer idea of how specific theories or concepts may be used as the basis for your study.
To prepare for this Assignment, please revisit the Dissertation Checklists available at the Walden University Center for Research Quality website, which can be found through this week’s Learning Resources. Pay particular attention to the items listed under “Chapter 2.”
The Assignment (3–4 pages):
My research though for my dissertation is: Parents’ and teachers’ perceptions of how Carribean culture influences views about mental illness and stigma in the school environment. When it comes to academic achievement?
I need an abstract
Paper must be in APA format
Briefly describe your possible dissertation topic.
Explain at least one theoretical or conceptual framework and its relationship to your topic.
Based on the literature you have reviewed thus far, annotate four articles that provide details regarding the relevance of the theoretical or conceptual framework to your possible dissertation topic.
Is there a gap in the literature?
Theoretical Foundation (as appropriate)
Name the theory or theories.
Provide origin or source of the theory.
Describe major theoretical propositions and/or major hypotheses, including delineation of any assumptions appropriate to the application of the theory.
Provide a literature and research based analysis of how the theory has been applied previously in ways similar to the current study.
Provide the rationale for the choice of this theory.
Describe how and why the selected theory relates to the present study and how the research questions relate to, challenge, or build upon existing theory.
Conceptual Framework (As appropriate)
Identify and define the concept/phenomenon.
Synthesize primary writings by key theorists, philosophers, and / or seminal researchers related to the concept or phenomenon.
Provide key statements and definitions inherent in the framework.
Describe how the concept or phenomenon has been applied and articulated in previous research and how the current study benefits from this framework.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
