Research Questions

On this page, we had originally planned on using the website willyou.type.withme, so each group could share their research questions electronically. That day of the project, however, the website didn’t work. Instead, each group typed their list of questions, printed enough copies for all groups, and shared the questions. The students were then allowed to revisit their list of questions and use another group’s question, if they would like. Here is the original list of questions:
