Y​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​our theoretical framework is the next assignment. My best advice – do not overthink this! For most of you, you will only be revising what was in your proposal! Your theoretical framework will either be about gaps in the literature or a theory on which you are building your study! Go back to your proposal and look at the notes I provided to you. Many of you can literally make minor revisions and the assignment is done! For Gaps in the Literature – you will only have about 1 paragraph. Tell me about what you have s​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​een in the literature and what gaps you think exist. That is it. Do not tell me more about the problem. For Theories – you will have about 2 paragraphs. The first one tells me about the theory and the second one tells me how you are applying it to your study. Please remember to include your hypothesis and either a null or alternate! Go back to your proposal and look at the notes on the hypotheses! The biggest mistake folks make on this part is that they overthink things! Keep it simple! This is not new work​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​!
