Quick Guide to Research

As you know, this achievement standard requires independent research of a literature topic, where you are expected to propose research questions, then present findings in written form, based on selected information from a range of referenced resources.

Your research topic must be related to your study of literature texts and be of sufficient content and breadth to provide opportunity for relevant conclusions to be drawn and presented.

Some of you are stuck on finding a topic so I have put down a few ideas with examples of texts to start you off.
