Developing a Research Question

Assignment Description

It is common for students to struggle with taking a topic and finding a research question within it.  These assignments, one developed for an upper division undergraduate class and the other for a freshmen-level class, guide students through the process with their own topic.  The assignment used with upper division students can be introduced and started during a library instruction session.  The freshmen level assignment can be introduced and completed during a library instruction session.
