The I-Search: Guiding Students Toward Relevant Research
One of the most important things a student can do in order to be successful in research is to develop a systematic research process. This process, known as the “I-Search,” is a process that allows students to systematically identify and research relevant sources.
The I-Search is a five-step process that helps students systematically identify and research sources. The first step of the I-Search is to identify the question that you want to answer. The second step is to identify the sources that will help you answer your question. The third step is to evaluate the sources to see if they are relevant. The fourth step is to use the sources that are relevant to answer your question. The fifth and final step is to reflect on your research process.
When conducting your I-Search, it is important to be systematic. Start by writing down your question and then write down the sources that you will use to answer it. Once you have identified all of the sources that you will use, it is important to evaluate them to see if they are relevant. Once you have evaluated the sources, it is time to use the sources that are relevant to answer your question. Finally, it is important to reflect on your research process.
The I-Search is an important process that helps students to be successful in research. By using a systematic research process, students are able to identify and research relevant sources.
