1. Do you prefer taking notes on paper or on a computer? How will you keep track of your research?
2. Have you selected a topic? Brainstorm 5-10 related search terms BEFORE you start your research.
For example: Search terms for Racial Inequalitycould include specific instances of inequality between races such as incarceration rate(s) or wealth disparity. Search terms for Immigration could include related words or terms like refugee(s), undocumented, DACA; Search terms can also include names of people, events, or places: while researching Climate Change you could use terms like Greta Thunberg, Paris Agreement, or Hurricane Ida.
