State Your Topic as a Question

A good way to start your research is to state your topic as a question. This will help you clarify your thoughts and focus on your topic.

For example, if your topic is drinking and driving, you could ask questions such as:

  • How does drinking affect driving?
  • What are the laws on drinking and driving?
  • What are the statistics on drinking and driving?
