Research Question: State your question before you begin your research. As you progress through your research, you should be able to tentatively answer this question in a few sentences, which may become the basis for your argument. Often, your initial research question will change and become more complex as you gather and analyze information.

Working Thesis: Write out your WORKING thesis (“tentative thesis”). Remember, a thesis statement (major claim for your paper) contains two main parts: a limited topic plus a specific focus. It is a statement that demands “Prove it!” This doesn’t mean, however, that you will look for information that only supports your thesis. In fact, information that challenges your thesis is as important. The idea is that a working thesis will help you focus, but remember that your working thesis will change as you encounter and incorporate various ideas and sources in your research.

What new knowledge might your research add to your classmates’ and your instructor’s understanding? What new perspective might you bring to the topic?

Methodology: Explain how you will conduct your research in as much detail as possible. Discuss the kinds of sources you hope to consult, e.g., scholarly articles from peer-reviewed journals, newspaper articles, books, blogs…etc. Mention specific titles and resources.
