  13. 13. I-search process  Going through the I-search method, I was able to break down what the exact steps were to complete this research project. By formulating relevant questions and finding credible answers, I learned a lot about how to structure a project of this type and create an appealing and thorough report.
  14. 14. Reflection  Going through this project helped me understand a major global issue. The Taliban is present and still a major force in Afghanistan , and I could apply what I had read in “My Forbidden Face” to what I detailed in my report about the Taliban. Researching their motives and actions influenced how I take in news stories related to this topic and gave me valuable background knowledge to use in the future.
