Tips for Researching a Topic
1. Narrow your topic down based on your inquiry question: too broad is too much and too narrow doesn't give you enough to investigate.
2. Think around your topic: research information about the time period (what existed/what didn't; what else was taking place at that time); research significant ideas or concepts that are related to your topic (don't just look for a specific person, look for organizations, ideas, inspirations etc..related to that person
3. Don't just think about what, think about why and how: think deeper and try to look at relationships between things, parts of the whole, significance, future potential, etc...
Why does this matter?
How did/can my topic impact humanity, the world, or a specific location or group?
