Research for your Independent Inquiry

Try to get as much information as you can to help you answer your questions. Look hard for information that is really relevant to your questions and not just “kind of” relevant.

Look closely at the information to see what details there are in the text that can help you answer your questions, point you in a different direction or even make you ask new questions.

Look closely at the information to see the names of individuals, groups or places that you could get more information from. This could be someone’s name, the name of an organization, a company name, a website or anything else that you could use to do a new search.

Don’t be afraid to speak to people in order to find out information. This could be people in the school or even people outside the school. You could contact people by email, make phone calls or do Skype interviews. Make sure you are clear about what information you need from them and then ask the questions that help you get that information.
