This week you will draft several sections of your research proposal. This draft should be 3 – 4 pages in length and include a minimum of five resources (it will be used as the foundation for the entire proposal in unit 9). You need to pick a simple topic you can easily visualize. This will be the same topic you will use in Unit 9.

Introduction: present your topic, a problem statement, and some general information about your topic. Review of Literature: Summarize at least five relevant/related research studies relating to your chosen topic. Variables: Give a brief description of your independent variable and dependent variable. Hypothesis: Provide the specific hypothesis statement which includes the independent and dependent variable. References: You must include correctly-formatted APA in-text citations in the body of your proposal, and a matching reference list in appropriate APA form.
