Conversation: Project Builder (PB2A): Developing Research Questions
Write for ten minutes about any feelings, questions, or frustrations you have around writing, reading, or literacy. Are there any issues in these areas that have particularly excited or irked you?
Feel free to write in any way you want: full sentences, lists, words/phrases, etc.
Then, convert your writing into a list of questions that are a little broader than your own experience.
If you were annoyed by your high-school teacher’s focus on grammar rules, you might write “is it useful for writers to study grammar?”
If you find it hard to understand scholarly articles, you might write “how do students learn to read academic texts?”
If you have been put off by comments that police your language, you might write “how should teachers respond to student writing?
