2. Find 2 sources for Project 2. Prepare to share key information in class. Write down your sources in a comment below. Make sure to write the COMPLETE bibliography information for the source if you can!
3. Look carefully over our discuss on how to come up with strong research questions. Do some brief background research on your topic. Maybe read the Wikipedia page on your topic or see what Google says when you first search your topic (these will not be your sources or your information, but will help you get thinking!) Think about using who, what, where, when, why and how to help you get your questions started. Remember the questions cannot be too broad or too specific. They should help you figure out where you are going to go with your research! As you come up with questions, write at least 5 of your research questions on this form!
Come up with 5-8 Research Questions for your project!
