Picking Your Topic IS Research

You will need to pick a topic. This is not as easy as it seems! The video listed below, Picking Your Topic IS Research!, will show you some of the obstacles that students face as they work through this step. The video Refining & Broadening a Topic will help you think about your selected topic in narrower or broader terms.

Starting Research

Researching a topic can be a difficult process but it doesn't have to be. There are steps you can take to make your research process easy and stress free. Much like how you can't build a house without a solid foundation, you can't begin researching unless you have a good, solid foundation of information.This is a good time to begin figuring out what you want your topic to be and researching the context of what your topic is about. Come up with a list of keywords that you want to search and use the links below to help you find out information about your topic.
