Brainstorming or Mind Mapping are two ways of helping to develop a question. 

To brainstorm:
  • jot down all your ideas about the topic

  • organize your information into categories

  • think about what you already know and where your areas of interests are

  • use this to choose the direction of your research

To create a mind map:

  • put the main idea or topic in the centre

  • create branches for each category or idea 

  • include pictures as you go
