Develop a Research Question

This Develop a Research Question video also includes:

Once a topic for researching has been determined, the next step is to narrow down to a specific question within the topic. The second in a nine-part series on writing an informational text about Native Americans uses prior knowledge as a vehicle for determining what that question should be. Learners will complete the the first sections of a KWL chart, and use this in the next video to generate questions as a springboard for research.
