As we have seen, the first step in the research process is to ask a precise and well-defined question. In other words, you need to find a research topic that asks a specific question or set of questions (this is called research questions). Sounds pretty easy, right? All you have to do is identify one or two questions and you will have a successful research topic. Well, not quite…
A good thesis or dissertation topic has several important characteristics. In particular, a strong search topic should be:
Combine 1-3 information into a single sentence.
Example: Schools must require students to participate in physical education to keep them healthy, improve academic performance, and help them learn to cooperate.
Follow the steps below to write a successful thesis
Start writing early. Do not delay writing until you are ready for your project or research. Write complete and concise “Technical Reports” at the end of each work item. This way, you’ll remember everything you’ve done and record it correctly, when the work is still fresh in your mind. This is especially true if your job involves programming.
Find bugs early.
A well-written “white paper” will make you think about what you’ve done before moving on. If something is wrong, you’ll find it right away and can easily correct it, instead of having to redo the task later when you’re temporarily stressed and haven’t lost touch with it.
Step 3: Submit a strong research proposal
Once you’ve found a good research topic, the next step is to persuade your university to let you research it. No matter how good you think your topic is, it must first be approved before you can proceed with your research. A research proposal can be used as a tool to achieve this.
4: Essay Draft
Using your working memory as a guide, write your essay. Insert your thesis at the end of the introduction. Be sure to keep your thesis in mind as you analyze the evidence you present in the body paragraphs. Ask yourself: how does this evidence support my thesis? Ideally, you’ll learn more about the text by carefully analyzing its evidence. Revise your thesis as necessary.
When you have written your draft, read it carefully. Ask yourself the following questions:
