1.2 Turning Your Topic into a Question

  • Turn your topic into a question that starts with either what, why, or how.
    Example question for EDPY:
    What is the foreign language proficiency of elementary-aged children with autism in Alberta schools?
  • What other questions do you need to answer in order to answer your main question?
    Jot your other questions down, e.g.
    What inclusion indicators and standards exist for foreign language learning in Alberta schools?

For a more in depth look at research questions, please consult the SAGE Research Methods Project Planner.
