Counseling Services: Education Theories
Find an established theory that addresses the topic you’re exploring in this course. This theory can be one that was arrived at via quantitative or qualitative methodology or both. Good established theories are those that have received significant attention by multiple writers, but which usually can be traced to one author whose work has been expanded upon by other researchers whose work is also often cited. Examine the major aspects and variables of your own topic and starting searching for theories that touch on your subject.
Once you’ve found a theory that could serve as the framework of your research topic or question, write a 600-word essay that explains that theory, in detail, and addresses why it could serve as a possible theoretical framework for your own research. (I’ve included in this week’s block a copy of a portion of the theoretical framework section of my own recent work. Feel free to use it as an example.) Your answer will be graded on content, plus APA style and English grammar and usage. Your answer must be double-spaced using Times New Roman 12-point font.
