LIBRARY ASSIGNMENT

1.  What is your research topic?

2.  Background information & research questions

    3.  Search for sources in the library databases:

    4.  Document and annotate your sources using MLA citation

     

    MAPPING RESEARCH QUESTIONS: PRISONS

    Draw a circle in the middle of a blank piece of paper.  Inside the circle, put your idea for a paper topic

    Brainstorm as many questions as you can about your topic.  Try asking questions such as Why?  Who?  How?  When?  Where?  In what ways?

     

    Look for broad questions that can be further divided into more narrow, specific questions

    Continue to narrow your topic by asking questions about culture, geography, demographics, time periods, etc.

    Review your topic map.  Which questions are you most interested in?  Which are the best fit for your assignment?  Highlight keywords and phrases you can use to search for information on this topic.
