Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Identity (Psychology) in adolescence; English language -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Foreign speakers;
The investigation of the process of identity development is very complex, as a multitude of background information and influencing factors must be considered before suggestions can be made for incorporating identity exploration into a secondary school setting. Chapter One sets the groundwork for this investigation by first describing the nature of the issue and generally introducing topics which will be explored in later chapters. The research question is stated, then expanded upon to include the factors one must consider when attempting to answer the research question. The chapter continues by explaining the significance of the problem, as established in both real-world and research situations. Definitions of subject-specific terminology used throughout the paper are provided. Chapter One concludes with an overview of the organization of the paper, chronicling the main topics addressed in each section.
