NBE 3U: Indigenous Issues Inquiry
Develop a Central Research Question
Indigenous Issues Research: Special Consideration
Like any issue that involves groups with competing perspectives, discussions about Indigenous history and rights in Canada can become very heated with emotion. Since the topics you are researching are controversial, you must be very thoughtful about the sources you choose to use. Searching on the internet will produce many bigoted, inaccurate, and hateful websites, blogs, and commentaries. Try to avoid personal webpages and blogs; prefer websites that are affiliated with educational groups or NGOs. Give more weight to authentic Indigenous voices.
The first stage of this project involves exploring the many resources to find an idea or issue or fact that fits with some concept that already intrigues you or sparks your curiosity.
Who (is involved, is affected, is concerned)?
What (is the process, is the standard, are the materials)?
When (in the day, in the year, in history, in what sequence?)
Where (geographic boundaries, landmarks, regions, buildings)
Why (reasons, circumstances, goals, objectives)?
Why does it matter? ( different stakeholders, for now and for the future)
