Transcript of Importance of Research

Foundation
It is important to have a variety
of sources for your research because it makes your project stronger

Phase 2
Why do we research?
Press Release
Research questions should guide
Research is a way of "knowing."
It is how we try out a hypothesis.
It is how we come to know what we do not know.
Most research starts like this:
creating a research question
gathering information
organizing it
making conclusions
modifying question
share
What is a research question?
the information you gather
to keep you on track
Research requires using the words of others.
This is called quoting.

Quoting is an action. It is when you take what someone else has written and you copy it down exactly as it is in your own writing.
When you do this it is important to give others
credit for what they have written so it does
not get confused with what you have written. We do this with quotation marks.
quotation marks = "blah blah"
"Why art thou silent! Is thy love a plant"
BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

Why art thou silent! Is thy love a plant
Of such weak fibre that the treacherous air
Of absence withers what was once so fair?
Is there no debt to pay, no boon to grant?
Yet have my thoughts for thee been vigilant—
Bound to thy service with unceasing care,
The mind’s least generous wish a mendicant
For nought but what thy happiness could spare.
Speak— though this soft warm heart, once free to hold
A thousand tender pleasures, thine and mine,
Be left more desolate, more dreary cold
Than a forsaken bird’s-nest filled with snow
‘Mid its own bush of leafless eglantine—
Speak, that my torturing doubts their end may know.
This poem is very silly. It talks about how someone's special somebody is not loving them well. The author decides to describe her love like a plant. None of these examples are more clear and understandable than when the author states, "Be left more desolate,, more dreary cold/Than a forsaken bird's-nest filled with snow" (Wordsworth). This image is easy to picture as it is described.
Research Essay
Poem
Using quotations in your project make it better because people will listen closer
when they can tell you have looked at what others have written about the same topic.
It is dangerous to not put quotes around others' writing because you can be sued or worse.
Not giving credit to the original author is called plagiarism.
