Synthesis of the Scholarly Literature

Use a total of 5 to 7 peer-reviewed research articles about “Training for Educators and Administrators to Engage and Support LGBTQ High School Students” to develop an initial synthesis of the related literature.

Determine the commonalities among the research articles by group. For example, did the researchers use similar theoretical frameworks, sample participants, or methodologies (e.g., procedures, instruments) to collect data? How were the results similar? Determine the differences among the research articles by group. For example, did the researchers use different theoretical frameworks, sample participants, or methodologies (e.g., procedures, instruments) to collect data? How were the results different? Determine reoccurring concepts/themes in the overall findings and conclusions, and state whether any of these were indicated to be in need of further inquiry.
