Making the Grade

Welcome to the first module in R4S! To begin, listen to the Voki by clicking on the play button.

Asking good questions is where research projects begin. If you are creating a term paper, video or presentation, it all begins with the question.

We seek answers to questions every day. Which college is best for me? Which car is the most economical to drive? How can I find a job?

Become an effective, creative researcher and problem solver! Begin with good, solid questions that focus your research topic or solution to a problem.

By the end of the module you will be able to state:

  • I can ask appropriate questions that help me focus a research topic or solve a problem.
  • I can use questions to narrow or broaden my topic.
  • I can ask questions that open several avenues for me to explore.

Note: Your teacher may ask that you assess your research skills with the TRAILS assessment.  Be sure to ask your teacher about TRAILS.
