I Me My On Tuesday morning, I picked up my aunt and we met up with Hajji Sabah at my cousin’s house. Having met before, I was able to dive right into my interview questions.
Four Sections What I Know What I am Asking and Why I Want to Know The Search What I Learned
What makes a good I-Search question? Is it written as a question instead of a statement? Do I need to clarify any terms to make my research question understandable to my audience? Am I personally invested in exploring this question? Why or how will exploring this question help me? Can I articulate my motivation for asking this question? Is my question something I can research using secondary sources? Can it be answered too easily or do I need a diverse set of sources to find answers? Is my question specific or concrete enough to explore in 1500 -2000 words? Or is it too broad or too narrow?
