Make sure you understand your research assignment! Look for key details such as the following:
Start by brainstorming some potential topics to explore further.
Now that you have a potential topic in mind think about what information you need, and where you can find it.
Finally, you'll need to test out your topic and see if you need to scope it. Test your topic by running some searches online and conducting background research.
Background information provides a general overview of a research topic, including important terms and concepts, relevant names of people or places, and dates of specific events. Finding background information can help you locate keywords for searching databases and identify more specific areas of your topic that you may want to research further.
