Not all conceptual frameworks have to include a diagram or graphic. You can present the same information by writing a narrative. Your narrative should summarize the variables influencing your research and explore how they may change your hypothesis. The narrative should also explain the basic methodology for your research. Even if you include a diagram in your conceptual framework, a narrative should also be included explaining these details for those who prefer more in-depth information. Use bolded headers to separate the sections of your narrative and to create a visual hierarchy of information.
