Many students struggle with developing questions for research, mainly because they don’t practice asking questions that are clear, focused, concise, complex and arguable. These resources are meant to guide students towards creating a solid research question that allows them to conduct analytical research in the Humanities.
These resources are shared through Google Drive as PDFs, and can be opened with “Google Docs” if you wish to make any changes to the documents. The presentation resource includes a Google Slides and PowerPoint version.
- Example copy and student blank copy notes
- Presentation (PPT and Slides)
- Abstract Analysis Worksheet
- Abstracts - teacher copy with example selections and student copy
**Note: This lesson is designed for high school seniors or college freshmen, but you can modify the lesson for on-level students by replacing the abstracts provided with persuasive essay introductions.
