Theoretical Framework Assignment Instructions
Research is typically explained, or supported, by a theoretical framework. The question to ask when writing the theoretical framework is “how does the theory inform the problem?” The information in the theoretical framework must present the theory and theorist, coordinating concepts, and rationale for utilizing the theory for the research with a clear connection drawn between the theory and the proposed research.
