Transcript of HS - Crafting a Research Question w/ Historical Context

Crafting a Research Question
A well-developed research question helps writers avoid the “all-about” paper and work toward supporting a specific, arguable thesis.
Developing Your Question
A research question should be:
Clear | Focused | Arguable
Steps to forming a question:
1. Pick a topic

2. Research (you can't form your question without base knowledge)

3. ASK: What do you know? What do you want to know?

4. Write your question

5. Evaluate your question
Is your research question clear?
Is your research question focused?
Is your research question arguable?
