  • 3. Let’s focus on: Selecting Subtopics Subtopics
  • 4. Concepts to Consider “ What do I want to know about my topic?” Where do they come from? Why are subtopics so important? How do I know if a subtopic is “good”? Subtopics focus research by answering the question: How many should I use? Subtopics
  • 5. Subtopics focus your research: “ WHAT do I want to know about (my topic)?” Subtopics “ HOW do I create a plan to explore (my topic)?”
  • 6. Why are subtopics so important? “ You have absolutely Because if you don’t have subtopics, NO idea what you are doing!” Subtopics
  • 7. Subtopics become the plan for research! Like an architect’s blueprints, Or a doctor’s x-ray, <ul><li>Subtopic </li></ul><ul><li>Subtopic </li></ul><ul><li>Subtopic </li></ul>Subtopics Topic
  • 8. How do I know if a subtopic is “good”? Information Subtopics
  • 9. Where do subtopics come from? General subtopics Specific subtopics can be brainstormed. must be pre-searched. subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics Subtopics
  • 10. General subtopics examples: Person: Early life, Education, Accomplishments, Later life Place: Origin, History, Leaders, Economy, Culture, etc. Thing: Who, What, When, Where, Why, How Subtopics
  • 11. This simple story explains general subtopics: A little boy walks into the elementary school library and asks the library media teacher for help because he’s writing a report about dinosaurs. Seeing the difficulty of too much information, the LMT asks, “Perhaps you want to know about its body--what it looked like?” “ Yes, I do!,” said the little boy. “ Maybe you want to know what it ate?,” she asks. “ Yes, my teacher said I need to include that.” “ Maybe you want to know where it lived?” As you can see, the library teacher was guiding him to choose subtopics in order to filter information. Subtopics
  • 12. Specific subtopics examples: Early life, Surveyor, Soldier, General, President Gallo-Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Enlightenment Inventor, Uses, Improvements Paris: Photovoltaic cell: George Washington: “ I need to search for specific ways to tackle this topic.” Subtopics
  • 13. Look for specific subtopics in: Just like topics, “ pre-search” to research! subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics subtopics Book’s table of contents Encyclopedia’s bold subheads Textbook’s units and chapter titles Internet web site’s index or subsections Subtopics
  • 14. How many subtopics should I use? How do I start? How can I adjust? Budget your time according to when your project is due. You or your teacher can judge your ability to access, evaluate, and use information, Fewer days of research = fewer subtopics “ So in a week, can I do ten subtopics?” Well, can you? and your motivation to complete tasks! Subtopics
  • 15. Remember, subtopics are the guideposts on the road to to information management. subtopic subtopic subtopic subtopic
