Plan Your Search

Plan Your Search

Think of a movie, television show, or online video that has a character or a situation in it related to your topic. Decide how that character personifies the disability you chose.

To search databases for research articles that address your ideas, choose keywords that describe your topic.

In my example, I would type in: autism empathy

The more keywords you use, the fewer results you get.
