On-Line Learning Modules Immigrant and Mexican American Domestic Violence Or Family Violence (Module 4B) Module On-Line Weekly Synopsis and Term Paper Each student should summarize the article in their case study module and submit it over the email each week. Students who did not fulfill the requirements for the case study interview should do the current module reading each week and make up the module for the weeks in which they have missed a grade by 12-1-2001. These modules are the basis for your term paper. It is expected that you will synthesize the information in the module articles in your term paper. The synthesis of the literature in a review involves comparing author's concepts, theoretical explanations and research results in order to group instances in which repeated research supports use of a concept, theory or research findings or where conflicting results have been obtained and further research is needed. In a synthesis, you are expected to group author citations supporting a statement in your paper and not to discuss author's work on a one by one basis- what you might call single file. All of the peer-reviewed journal articles assigned in the readings this semester begin with a literature review, which provides an example of the synthesis that is espected in your module based term paper.9-2/4 Module 4: Lown, E.
