COM 156 Version 5 Week 1 Appendix D




Research Plan;As part of your research plan, you must first draft a research question for your research paper that will guide the rest of your writing. A research question, which is more specific and focused than a general topic, is the question that your research paper will be answering. For example, if your general area of interest is social security, a possible research question might ask ?How can low-income families save more money if the United States had a reformed social security plan that includes personal retirement accounts??;As you develop a research question, keep in mind that you will need to research sources to support your topic. Do not pick a one-sided question that will limit your research. Instead, develop a research question that lends itself to further exploration and debate?a question for which you genuinely want to know the answer. Try to pick a research question that is neither too broad, which covers too much, or too narrow, which covers too little. It should be broad enough to be discussed in a short research paper.;Associate Level Material;What is your general topic or area of interest?;What is it about your general topic of interest that interests you?;What questions do you have about the topic that you would like to investigate? List them.;Would any of the questions you listed about the topic make a good subject for a research paper? Pick or adapt one question and make it into a research question.;Why do you think this research question will be appropriate for a research paper?;How is your research question significant or relevant to a wider community?;What background information provides the preliminary grounds for your research?;What are some expert or authoritative sources of information on this research question?;What type of materials will you need to review for your research paper?;What procedures will you follow to conduct your research?;What difficulties do you anticipate in conducting your research?
