Synthesis is the act of creating something new from multiple existing entities. Synthesis of research, then, is creating a new idea from existing ideas. This assignment is designed to help you identify how themes can emerge from reading literature and how you can synthesize this information in a way that creates new knowledge. You will use your understandings of the Topic 2 readings to complete a synthesis worksheet.

General Requirements:

  • This assignment will be used as a pre-writing activity for the synthesis paper in Topic 5.
  • Locate and download “Synthesis Worksheet” from the Course Materials for this topic.
  • Review the articles by Baker & Pifer (2011),  Gardner (2009), and Smith & Hatmaker (2014) located in the Course      Materials for this topic.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. Review the GCU APA Style Guide for Writing located in the Student Success Center.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.  Refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.


Complete the Synthesis Worksheet for the articles by Baker & Pifer (2011), Gardner (2009), and Smith & Hatmaker (2014). The completed worksheet will include the following sections:

  1. An Introduction that introduces and provides context  for the topic, presents three common themes that emerged from the  readings, and provides organization for the paper with a thesis statement.
  2. A description of the evidence to support three common  themes that emerged from the articles. Since this is likely your first  experience with this depth of synthesis, we have provided two of the themes found in the articles. Your task is to identify a third theme and  to provide evidence from each article for all three common themes.
  3. A conclusion where you will return to your thesis and  provide evidence showing you successfully addressed your thesis statement.  Discuss the connections that you made from the evidence and how each theme emerged from the central topic of doctoral identity.
