Thesis Statement for the Integrative Literature Review
This week you will make a thesis statement for your Week 6 Final Assignment. Basically, a thesis statement deals with your perspectives on the literature you have outlined in the literature assignment of week three (last week) which you will be using for your Final Assignment week 6.
Your references from last week should include studies and you should have presented rationales last week for each reference’s being chosen as a part of your week 6 assignment. If you feel you need to make corrections in the week 2 assignment, make changes and notes as to the date of change and your reasoning so that it is official and clear for your use in preparing your Final Assignment.
The thesis statement you create should include the rationale and relevant empirical and theoretical background supporting your perspectives.
The primary objective of this assignment is to create an outline of specific questions you intend to answer in the final assignment. Over time these may change, if so simply note the alterations and why you have done these with the date. Change is part of the process.

-Be sure to utilize at least one peer-reviewed source per domain.
