rhtitlebrainst.gif (7385 bytes)In brainstorming you put your brain to work on the topic or question you have chosen to investigate.  The rules are simple:

Create an idea web or simply list ideas about your topic, as quickly as you can.  Don't evaluate or discuss them, just get them jotted down.

 

Then look at your ideas and begin to think about which ones might interest you most or help to answer your question best or cover the topic most clearly.

 

Finally, go to the Questions page to think through how you will deal with your topic.
