Develop Research Questions
Once you have selected an initial topic, the next step is to develop research questions.
- Write down what you already know or don't know about the topic.
- Using the information you wrote down, develop questions you'd like to answer when doing your research.
- Use probing questions such as why? how? what if? should?
- Avoid questions that can be answered with yes or no.
- Keep so what? in mind. In other words, why is this topic and the research question important?
