Vote! above a red ballot box, locked. A card with a star on it is sticking out of the top hole. Lightning bolts are coming out of the middle.

In 2-3 pages, outline what you want to research and how you want to go about researching it.

  2. What is your specific research question? Why is this question important? Have others already asked this question? If so, what is wrong with their answers? 
  3. What kinds of evidence do you need to answer this question? Where can you find this evidence? 
  4. What will give you confidence in this evidence (whatever it turns out to be)?
  5. What challenges will you need to overcome to carry out this research project?
