Step 1: Brainstorm!

It's always a good idea to begin your research by asking yourself, "What is it that I want my paper to answer?"

By developing a research question, you can focus your research topic and brainstorm keywords that will help you quickly find relevant evidence, support, or counter-arguments.

Narrow down your research topic and develop a research question by asking yourself the 5Ws.

Here's an example:

MY TOPIC: Bilingual Education

  • WHO? Elementary school children
  • WHAT? Bilingual education
  • WHERE? Public schools in California
  • WHEN? In the last 10 years
  • WHY? Why has official bilingual education been taken out of public schools in Los Angeles?


FOCUSED RESEARCH QUESTION: Does bilingual education in public elementary schools help or hinder the cognitive development of school-aged children?


KEYWORDS: Bilingual education, public schools, California, elementary schools, learning, cognitive development, child development
