|Rubric for Grading the USP 186 Literature Review and Storyboard Assignment (20% of course grade)|
|Criteria||Excellence in meeting this criteria||Full point value for this aspect of the review|
|Coherence around a clear organizing theme (an identifiable conceptual road map, ontology, set of meaningful connected categories)||The review has a bounded substantive domain of scholarly work (i.e., there is coherence and integrity in the selection of work reviewed –it is not a running annotated bibliography, rather it has a conceptual frame around it). The literature referenced is substantial containing the required number of peer reviewed article and books.||
|Narrative flow makes sense||The review has a meaningful flow to it: i.e., it engages the literature reflecting the “They Say, I Say” approach we covered in class; the overarching narrative discusses the body of work reviewed as if joining a scholarly conversation.
|Story Board and Bibliography contain all parts and proper formatting.||The story board has a well-articulated story at its center, distinct from a larger set of forces that bracket/inform/motivate the story (i.e., the context is identified and makes sense). The storyboard contains the other key elements (e.g., behaviors to be examined, scale of analysis, highlights and references to associated theory). The bibliography is complete and properly formatted.||4/5|
