Learn to Research

A guide that will teach you the basic steps to completing research for your assignments.

Make a Research Plan

It may be daunting to start your research, but we have four strategies to help you.

Do some background research on your topic. This will help you brainstorm keywords and create your research question. While you're conducting your background research, take note of any questions you have on your topic. These questions will indicate areas where you can explore further. Have a general outline at the beginning of your research process. This will help you focus your vision and ideas. Think about the types of sources that will be best suited for your particular topic and assignment.
