Research as a Process

Choose a research question based on your personal experiences. It must be interesting, significant, and problematic enough to warrant an argumentative essay.

  • What is my topic?
  • What question am I asking or argument am I making related to this topic? 
  • What kind of keywords should I be using in my search?

You will then develop questions which help you look at the issue from a larger perspective.

Developing Questions

Concept 1: (ex: “my personal experience”)

Concept 2:  (ex: how impacts economy)

Concept 3:  (ex:  how impacts morale)

(ex: getting paid less)

 (ex: purchasing power)

 (ex: equal work/equal pay)

 (ex: gender)

 (ex: income inequality)

(ex: glass ceiling)
