The research process is circular. You will return to some steps multiple times as you research, read, and gain more information.
- Project Assigned
- Pick topic, and test the topic. Is it too broad? Too narrow? Too new? Will this work?
- Find, read, & evaluate sources. Keep a research log.
- Keep repeating steps 2-3 as necessary. Your topic will evolve several times. Think critically about whether you need primary or secondary sources for different parts of your argument.
- Write and edit.
- Identify spaces in your argument that need more support, and repeat step 3 as necessary.
- Project due.
