THEORY REVIEW FORM ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
A theory is a generalized explanation of defined constructs or ideas that asserts, explains, or
predicts relationships, connections, or challenges between or among phenomena. You will select
a theory as the framework for your study. For this assignment, you will become more familiar
with your chosen theory as you review two sources about the theory.
Locate two peer-reviewed articles or books that focus on the established theory you have chosen
as the framework for your study. You may choose only one theory as the focus for this
It is preferred for the first source to be the seminal work of your selected theorist. A
seminal work is the primary text written by the theorist regarding a specific theory. If the
seminal work for your theory is not available, select another resource that provides a
basic understanding of the theory.
The second source must be specifically about the theory, not just an article or book that
indirectly mentions the theory. Articles selected must be theoretical articles, not empirical
studies that use the theory as the theoretical framework.
After thoroughly reviewing your selected sources, complete the Theory Review Form
Template provided with this assignment. You may need other sources besides your two selected
sources to complete this template. All citations and references must be formatted according to
current APA guidelines.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
