Approach Statement for Formulating Research Questions

For this Discussion, you will create an Approach Statement, which will consist of a list of bullet points that will indicate step by step how you will go about preparing for the draft of your research questions

You are being asked to discuss how you plan to prepare your Approach Statement, rather than simply being dispatched to create a draft. This is intended to help you create an awareness and understanding of your own thought and learning processes. This concept, known as metacognition, is the thinking about thinking. Metacognition is crucial to your success as a student and as a researcher. An Approach Statement will be the deliverable for each Discussion 1 in Weeks 2, 3, 4 and 5. From your Approach Statement, your Instructor will be able evaluate your ability to conceptualize individual tasks to execute to achieve your research goals. This type of assessment is not often done and is invaluable in guiding your ability to evolve your research skills and strategies.

To prepare for this Discussion, be sure to read the instructions for Week 2 Discussion 2, in which you will be asked to post the most recent version of your research question(s) section of the Dissertation Prospectus template.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by your Approach Statement in the form of a bulleted list of the steps you will take to develop your Research Questions, of this week for Week 2 Discussion 2.
