Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated please.
Heya, I would have a search for journals on Children's literature or books with a variety of essays on the topic e.g.
There are two main purposes of a literature review: .
justify their study of Portuguese public sector accounting on the basis that European public sector accounting is less explored than that in the private sector, and particularly little is known about Portuguese double-entry bookkeeping.
All literature reviews should be more than a mere description of the current state of knowledge of an area, and should critically evaluate the theoretical positions and research studies, drawing attention to major debates.
This is particularly true for a research dissertation or paper, which should go one step further by using the review to situate the author's own contribution to knowledge.
The literature review has been described as a "report of primary scholarship" (Cooper, 1988) and "an interpretation and synthesis of published work" (Merriam, 1988, quoted by Murray, 2002).
The two key words here are scholarship and synthesis: a literature review relates particular research to the a wider field.
Ellie I’ve just finished my second year of university and starting on thinking of some ideas for dissertation..I can’t think of anything at all!
Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated please. Both my previous unis always told students to shy away from children's literature as it's not intellectual/hard enough. Your dissertation will not help you get into teaching whatsoever, especially if you're considering a PGCE anyway.
