What strategies can I apply?

When you read an article, you can develop questions for further research using three levels of questions:

  • Questions developed directly from the text.
  • Questions implied in the text.
  • Questions that take your research deeper.
Directions: Begin with #1 and work through #3 below.

Develop possible questions for your own assigned research project or your personal information need to solve a problem using the Question Generator Form Word document or PDF.


Check your questions with this Research Question Rubric Word document or PDF.


Show what you know with this quiz.

In the next module you will begin finding information about your topic. You may need to revise your question(s) as you continue your work.
