This week, you will develop a research question for your annotated bibliography:

  1. Choose a research topic ( Early childhood education).
  2. Explore your topic.
  3. Write your research question.

Choose a Research Topic

Choose a research topic related to your program or major ( Educational Studies). This topic will be used for all five weeks so choose one that interests you and for which two scholarly articles, one e-book , and two non-scholarly sources are available. Review the Possible Topics for Research handout if you need ideas. It is recommended that you review the GEN103 Week 1 Assignment example.

Provide a two to three sentence explanation of the research topic and how it is related to your major on the Week 1 Research Topic and Question worksheet.

Explore your Topic

On the Week 1 Assignment worksheet, fill in the KWHL chart to explore the research topic. Be sure to carefully follow the instructions on the worksheet. The 4 Easy Steps to Using the Ashford Library for Background Research is a helpful resource at this point.

Write Your Research Question

Write the first draft of your research question in the table at the bottom of the Week 1 Assignment worksheet. Your research question will help you focus your research by defining the information you are looking for as you research your topic.

Your research question must be:

  • Open-ended (should begin with “how,” “why” or “what”)
  • Clear
  • Concise
  • Detailed

The How to Ask an Open-Ended Question handout can help you formulate an open-ended question.
