On Thursday morning, Professor Sage approves Val's focused topic. To Val's relief, the lesson is about forming a research question - the part she didn't understand before. As she takes out her notebook, she begins to relax just a little.
Professor Sage explains: "When you do research in your personal life, it's usually because there's a question you need to answer. For example, Which car is the best buy? Should I see a doctor?
"Researching for a college paper is the same way. Ask a question that you would like to know about the topic. Your research will help you answer the question."
