The research question for this project is, “Does the learning centers in City Tech provide help for the students?” The learning areas of City Tech interest students because it is a way to enhance learning abilities. Also, it is a way for students to gain feedback from their work. The learning areas such as the library and the learning center are good sources to enhance the learning abilities of students. A way to narrow down the topic is to pick one specific learning area of the school. To make this short research project more manageable, students can start off listing the step by step process, instead of doing things all at once. The important part of this project is learning how the learning areas are helpful of not helpful for the students at City Tech. This topic should interest current students, future students, faculty and staff. Current students should feels good that there is a place to go where they can study, do homework and get help on their work. Future students should wonder if there are effective work spaces for them when considering City Tech as one of their choice of colleges. Lastly, there should be enough faculty and staff to help students with computers and/or finding books in the library and help students get feedback on their work at the learning center.
Some questions that support this research would be, Do the students look like they are comfortable in the environment?, How often are students using the learning areas?, Are the learning areas noisy or peaceful?, Do the students feel like they are getting enough help in the learning center?, Does the learning areas ever get crowded to the point where the student can’t get effective help or cannot find somewhere to study? These questions would be important to ask students from around the school in a survey because it affects their learning community. This proposal is definitely argumentative and not just a statement of fact. There are many points as to what kind of effective learning areas City Tech has that can be argued.
