Transcript of Research Questions and Note Taking

Research Questions
A good research question can't be answered in one word or with a 'yes' or a 'no'.
For example: How tall is bigfoot?

There. Research done. Finished. Over.
Whatever will you do for three weeks?

Is the Bermuda Triangle real?
6'7"
Yes.

A better question might be: What are the different ways that people have described a Bigfoot sighting?

A much better research question!
Now, when you research you can look up all of the following to answer that question!
Characteristics of the creature
Who sighted it
Where they were/what they were doing
ETC...

How to take notes
Once you choose your final 4-6 research
questions you will start your research. You will
ONLY RESEARCH ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS.

Tips
When you are sure you have found information worth writing down--- WRITE DOWN THE BIBLIOGRAPHY information FIRST.
It really stinks when you have great facts but
totally forgot which online resource or book they
came from. You'll have to redo any research that isn't cited properly!
Only use one PAGE or SIDE of the notes page for each source. We have extra pages. Don't cram all your research on one page.

A source
is a book or a database article.
This is a source.
This is a different source.
Finding one answer in one source is not enough. It's not really research unless you have a lot of information (and sometimes the same information) from multiple sources.
Maybe both of these books say the same thing about
about one of your research questions. GREAT! Write down info from both of them! It strengthens your research and will help you find 5-6 facts per question.
A good way to judge if you have enough information is to ask yourself: Do I have enough information to write an entire paragraph about this research question?
Highlight this on your notes sheets.

Write yourself a little note:

See GREEN SHEET.
Good morning!

Get out all your research papers. Free read
until class begins!

AFTER YOU WRITE YOUR 4-6 RESEARCH QUESTIONS... SHOW THEM TO A TEACHER. YOU MUST GET A SIGNATURE BEFORE STARTING THE RESEARCH.
So, if I find 3 facts from here


and three facts from here...
Some scientists believe that water
currents are to blame for the strange happenings.
