Why People Should Care about My Question
Let's start by doing some pre-research.
After you've done some "pre-research" reading, create a Discussion that explains, "Why People Should Care about My Question."
Make your title a question that includes your topic, add at least five keywords to identify some of your subtopics. (See these guides for help with your subtopics and questioins: subtopic questions.pdf and subtopic headings.pdf.) Also, attach a Creative Commons image, being sure to cite the photographer.
Respond to each question below with a short, but well-thought-out, paragraph. Be as specific as possible for the audience who will be reading your posting. Your Discussion Post should have a total of five paragraphs.
- What is the general topic you are interested in?
- Why are you personally interested in this topic?
- What new information did you find out in the pre-research process? How did finding, or not finding, any new information affect your decision to continue researching this topic?
- How is this topic an issue of unfairness? Who is being treated unfairly?
- Why should people care about this topic at all?
Work you will have:
- A link to a Google Doc that lists three articles connected to your research topic with the title and a one-paragraph summary of each one in your own words.
- A link to a discussion post with a Creative Commons image and five keywords, in which you make clear:
- The general topic you are interested in, and why you are personally interested.
- Any new information you found out in the pre-research process.
- How this topic is an issue of unfairness, highlighting who is being treated unfairly.
- Reasons for why people should care about this topic at all.
