Students work to generate more specific inquiry questions to frame their research. Students were introduced to inquiry questions in Unit 1. In this lesson, they learn how to craft specific inquiry questions for their selected research topic/area of investigation developed in the previous lesson. Students engage in a research process check-in during which they review the Student Research Plan Handout. Students also review inquiry questions from Unit 1 and generate, vet, and refine specific inquiry questions for their research topic/area of investigation using a Specific Inquiry Questions Checklist.
