• Introduction (no more than 1 page in length) – if, through your analysis, you have been able to demonstrate that one of the camps of thought under discussion has a stronger argument (as defined by Lewis), you can make this your thesis statement.

However, you are not to take sides when it comes to the topic itself. Write the review in third-person and be as objective and inclusive as possible. The literature review must be structured so that it is not just an annotated bibliography – remember that the main purpose is not only to examine different viewpoints on a topic but, more importantly, to discuss how these viewpoints are presented in different ways.

If your analysis points to the strength of the argumentation employed by a particular camp of thought, you will introduce this idea in your introduction and give an overview of the main ideas in each of your sections. As you write your sections, remember to relate your information back to the main idea. Additionally, use the introduction to introduce the scope and types of sources you are analysing.

• Background (no more than 1 page in length) – in this section, you will summarise some basic facts/background information about your issue using a variety of sources.

Describe what the issue is and why it is important. Use sub-headings where appropriate.

You will probably wish to organise this section like a mini-essay, with a short introductory paragraph to introduce your main idea and main points, and a conclusion that wraps up your ideas in a satisfying manner and relates them back to your overall idea.

• Viewpoints (no more than 3 pages in length) – in this section, you will group the different viewpoints that your authors have about this issue into several categories or camps of thought, with a separate sub-heading for each category.
