Review of the Investigating Process

Let's wrap up the process of investigating:

Plan! Plan! Plan!

You will save time and effort if you do.

Not all papers are created equal.

Examine each assignment carefully and pick research resources accordingly.

Be flexible.

If you feel as if you are spinning your wheels, re-evaluate your topic, thesis, or research question and revise if necessary.
