It sounds as though you are expected to do a review of the literature, not find a literature review.  If you have access to an EBSCO database or a similar academic database, either at your school library or at a public library, in particular one that includes ERIC, you should be able to do a Boolean search without too much problem.  Since I do not know the academic content area for which your research is being done, it is a bit difficult to know what search terms you will need.  There might be a speech pathology focus, but I cannot tell.  That is one term, though, that might be useful.  As you do a Boolean search, remember that you want to use "AND" in combination with your search terms to limit your results to those that involve reading and speaking or listening and speaking. Since these are such common terms, though, you will have to add at least one additional "AND" term that is related to the content area or focus of your research.  I have included a link for the EBSCO home page, which has some helpful advice, too.  

I hope this is of some use to you.  Good luck!
