  4. 4. 5. Asking the range of questions from a variety of appropriate sources for information (which are relevant, creditable) 6. Persistence in finding answers, and editing (changing, altering) questions when necessary (eg. Use of key words to begin and refine search for information)
  5. 5. Exercise • Look at the interest area/general question/s you have decided on. • What information do you want? • What are key words that you need, to find relevant information?
  6. 6. • Break your interest area/question into a series of smaller, progressive questions (simple to more complex) • Decide where you might look for relevant, credible information for each of the questions • Key words to begin search (appropriate to interest area)
  7. 7. Does your question: – have relevance to your interest area (context)? – contain key words and interlinks between ideas (specific to context)? – incorporate ‘utility’ words to assist in finding relevant information (who, what, when, where, why, which)?
  8. 8. For next week: What type of answers are you looking for? – Factual (Objective, Quantitative) – Views/experiences of other people (subjective, Qualitative) or a combination of both?
