Identify at least one theory that you will use to guide your research. Discuss why and how it is applicable. This theory should help explain the topic of interest and whether it involves basic research or an applied focus (including proposed interventions and their evaluation). Provide a brief overview of the theory as well as a summary of related research (which may both support and challenge this theory and its application).
In your responses to your classmates, focus on the summary of their research and how well it supports the focus of their research.
This discussion will help you prepare for Milestone Two.
