Turn in a draft of your research report. At this point your draft should a detailed outline, the table of contents, introduction, and literature review (although this may still be incomplete at this point). Please keep in mind, that while this is still considered a draft, that is only in the sense that it is incomplete. In other words, writing counts! Pay attention to the conventions of good writing: grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, style, etc.

Table of Contents
Use your research report outline to develop a table of contents for your Research Report. The pagination for the TOC is roman numerals. See APA and Lunenburg and Irby (2008).
Introduction (Lunenburg & Irby, Chapter 6)
Identify the topic to be investigated and need for the study, supported
by citations from researchers in the field of education or educational leadership. Explain how this study may contribute to decision making, planning and policy development for your school, school district, or organization.
Literature Review: (Lunenburg and Irby, Chapter 7)
Clearly and concisely state how you conducted the literature review. Google is not an acceptable search source. However, scholar.google.com can be helpful in searching publications. What were the key search terms? (i.e. year-round, elementary organizational calendars)
Limit the search and report to literature published from 2006-2022. This is a contemporary literature review and not a historical perspective.
Provide a synthesis of the literature and published studies. The order should be chronological and from large perspective (i.e. international/national) to small perspective (i.e. state/local). See Lunenburg and Irby (2018). Another example of logical organization of going from large to small would be to share research on your topic for education overall, then high schools, then middle schools, then elementary schools. Use subheadings to help the reader follow your investigation of literature cited. For example, you may have a topic of extended school year or school day. Then, have subheadings of International, National, and State. You may also have subheadings of high school, middle school, and elementary school. Literature that aligns with the subheadings should appear within those sections. Using subheadings assists you in organizing your writing and helps your reader in comprehending your writing.
