Starting a Research Project
People do research because:
- They are bored.
- They want to answer a question.
- They want to solve a problem.
- They want to improve something.
- They have a college project.
You start your research with a question to answer, or with a problem to solve.
How can I choose what to do?
- This topic is interesting.
- This problem must be solved.
- We need an answer to this question.
- I already know a lot about this topic.
- I know I can do better than other people.
Discuss your ideas and write down your research question (thesis question) or topic.
How do you find book in the library?
What do I know about this already? Make some notes.
When I want to find book I can ask librarian, search about number of the book, and look for the written signs.
Ideas where can I find more information:
- Ask MS.Heather
- Search in the internet.
- Ask students.
- Watching video.
On your laptop make a new folder. Give it a name: 0232 Research Project. This is where you can store all your research work.
Make notes of your ideas:
I will search in deferent websites, and I will get more information’s by asking.
Write a reference (say which document and where it is):
Author’s name (date of publication) Title, Publisher, Place of publication
Also note the page number where the information is.
Author name (date of publication) Title of article, Title of magazine/journal, Page numbers of article, Publisher, Place of publication
