The reading about research, “Research Starts with A Thesis Statement,” builds on what we just read last week, showing us that inquiry-based research helps us see a larger field of information than if we go into research already knowing what we want to argue. Using last week’s questions (what aspects about spaces for reflection do we want to learn more about? As an architecture student, what are ways that reflection is an important consideration in built spaces? What are some places you would consult for your research?), let’s add on to that to ask what do you find when you start to research reflection, and what terms do you add to narrow your search? Add a comment that includes:
- a resource you found
- a link to it
- what genre the resource is–what kind of text is it?
- what it tells you about places for reflection
- what you think of the source
- what question or questions you have after reading, and what question or questions it makes you want to find the answer to.
Comment on at least one classmate’s comment, asking follow-up questions or making observations about what they found.
