Identify one theorist and theory. Explain the primary postulates of the theory and how they relate to your problem and purpose

Instructions please no headings and I will attach my paper to this for you to read the instructors comments and please follow the directions. Here is the information that needs to be done.
Further refine your paper to include a sample theoretical or conceptual framework and a sample research question. Include the following:
Identify one theorist and theory.
Explain the primary postulates of the theory and how they relate to your problem and purpose.
Review two to three major research studies related to the framework and your study.
Clearly explain how the theory or conceptual framework aligns with your problem, purpose, and research questions. What ties them together?
Provide a research question.
Just me know if you need any help or questions.
Jada,
Thanks for getting this in a bit early. That’s why you are getting feedback so soon.
Thanks for an improved paper. I’m still struggling to understand your thoughts and plans. Again, it is all about evidence.
1. Make a statement
2. Give three sources of evidence with explanation in your own words
3. Conclude the paragraph (at least 4 sentences)
1. Go on to the next statement
2. Give three sources of evidence with explanation in your own words
3. Conclude the paragraph (at least 4 sentences)

Continue this procedure from the first page to the last page of your dissertation.
Your problem statement is a super great problem area. I understand and share your passion to work for student curriculum/literacy experiences that develop “soft skills.” This is a terrific area. But to graduate with a completed dissertation or project study, you will need to narrow that down to a problem statement. Review the course readings that talk about narrowing a topic or interest for use in a dissertation, please.
Also, please log-in to your Walden Portal and then take time to review the materials that I have provided in the announcements, especially
Problem Statement Part 1
Problem Statement Part 2
Paragraph Construction
Also, please send a good date and a few afternoon times (with time zone) and I’ll meet with you individually to help you with this.
Steve
Also, write more concisely. Never use 2 words when 1 word will do.

Assignment: Revising Your Research Problem Paper
Scholarly writing is an iterative process. This simply means that the first draft, even if it is our best effort, will not be our best draft. Instead, many rounds of feedback and revision must be conducted before the product is accepted. The purpose of this process is to build on the good work you have done, based on the feedback from the instructor, so that the paper meets acceptable standards for a scholarly paper.
To help you experience the iterative process, you may revise the Week 2 Writing Assignment (“The Problem Statement”) and submit it for the Week 4 Writing Assignment. In order to do this –
1. Thoroughly review the instructions from the Week 2 Writing Assignment.
2. Just open the Week 2 Assignment file that your instructor returned to you in the gradebook.
3. Read the feedback that your instructor gave to you.
4. Revise the paper. Be extremely careful to address every comment your professor gave to you and apply those lessons throughout the paper. Record them in your writing journal for mental reinforcement.
5. Submit it by day 7 of Week 4 instead of submitting the Week #4 Assignment.
This will not change the grade you received during Week 2, but it will give you an opportunity to revise your paper and receive a second grade for it in Week 4. Plus…the research problem will be a part of each of the remaining papers in this class. Remember, address all of your instructor’s comments.
Here are some resources to help you as you begin developing your Research Problem Statement.
Remember to choose a topic within your specialization.
1. About the Research Topic: Always keep in mind the “so what?” URL: http://academicguides.waldenu.edu/topic
2. Read the entire “Walden EdD Prospectus Guide,” then review the section that describes the research problem. URL: http://academicguides.waldenu.edu/topic
Excerpt:
Provide a one- to two-paragraph statement that is the result of a review of research findings and current practice that contains the following information:
1. A logical argument for the need to address an identified gap in practice; the problem must be clearly identified.
2. Preliminary evidence that provides justification that this problem is meaningful to both the local setting (project study) as well as to the education profession and discipline (dissertation and project study); provide three to five key citations that highlight the relevance and currency of the problem to your specialization. (p. 3)
3. Use the EdD Prospectus Rubric to self-assess your work. URL: http://academicguides.waldenu.edu/topic
To prepare:
• Review the required readings, media, and resources.
• Use your citation management software and Boolean logic, as you seek evidence from the literature that justifies pursuing this research problem
• Download the document titled “APA Course Paper Template With Advice (6th ed.)” from the “Walden Templates: General Templates” resource found in the Learning Resources.
By Day 7
To complete:
The Week 2 Assignment should be written in correct APA style and should include the following::
1. Thoroughly review the instructions from the Week 2 Writing Assignment. Include –
a. A title—a sample problem statement
b. A few sentences to introduce the problem and provide background
c. Straightforward and unambiguous sentences (1–2) that clearly state the problem (Note: Make it specific and precise.)
d. d. About 2–3 paragraphs that synthesize the evidence from research literature that this is a current, meaningful problem in the educational discipline
e. Statements substantiated by evidence from research (Note: Every statement must be substantiated by evidence from research.)
f. A short paragraph describing who would benefit from addressing this problem and in what ways they might benefit
g. Reference list of literature, in APA format, supporting this proposed study
h. Should be 3–6 pages in length, not including the title or reference pages
2. Open the Week 2 Assignment file that your instructor returned to you in the gradebook.
3. Read the feedback that your instructor gave to you.
4. Revise the paper. Be extremely careful to address every comment your professor gave to you.
5. Submit it by day 7 of Week 4 instead of submitting the Week #4 Assignment.
