Please review GRADING RUBRIC BELOW BEFORE STARTING:
Discussion boards are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to create a thread in response to the prompt provided for each forum. Each thread must be at least 700 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge, including at least 2 peer-reviewed source citations in current APA format, the text, and the integration of 1 biblical principle as outlined in the Discussion Board rubric.
In this course, you have developed the purpose of your research, the problem statement, the research questions, the hypotheses, related your project to the Merida text, and you have started your literature review. By now, you have probably identified at least one theory that you will discuss in your literature review as part of your applied research project. What theory or theories relate well to your topic? How would you incorporate theory into your research? Remember the use of theory is different for qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches. What would be different about the theory used if you chose either fixed, flexible, or a mixed methods approach?
