FInailize theoretical framework— Stage 1

After my class discussion last Thursday (09/27/2012), I am summarizing my literature review in order to figure out my theoretical framework, which should be already there.

To help out the process of finalizing TF, I engage myself for the following tasks:

1) Making a power point to write a longer abstract (5-6 pages) of my research

2) Looking at different possibilities of TF including

– Vygotsky’s learning theory (social constructivism)

– Situated learning (Borko, 2004; Wenger et al.)

3) Writing a draft of abstract by next Tuesday and revise it on Wednesday (10/03)

One thing added:

Print out the first 5 pages of LR section 2.1. and identify key topics in order to revise it. I just figured out that topics in this section are in a logical order… sigh…
