  • Creating Research Questions



    Now that you have a basic understanding of your person’s life and times, it’s time to create some research questions that will guide your thinking during this unit.

    Create 10 research questions about your topic.  The first research question should be, “Why is this person influential in our world today?”  The other 9 research questions should meet these criteria:

    • Questions without easy answers (avoid "yes/no" and short answer questions as well)
    • Questions that will require research in both primary and secondary sources
    • Questions that are interesting and will keep you motivated in your research

    Submit your question into the dropbox on the next page.
