TASK: Writing Effective Research Questions

Developing good research ideas is both a science and an art (Bradley 2001:569)


1. Read the following short paper entitled Qualitative Studies: Developing Good Research Questions (Bufkin, M.)

2. Create three research questions that could guide field research on a particular setting or social group of interest to you (from Bailey ch. 3, exercise 1).

3. If you dont mind sharing your craft, please respond to this post with your attempt at an effective research question.

4. Then, respond to one or two others questions, or give them a star if you think its a well written question.
