Step 1. Formulate an interesting question closely related to our inquiry on new media literacies. It's best if this topic is inherently interesting to you or if you see some clear benefit to learning more about it.
Step 2. Select one or more research methods. Options:
--online and library research
--interviewing, observation
Step 3. Develop a research proposal.
A. Your proposal should state your research question and offer a rationale for why you think it is interesting or important.
B. You should identify a number of questions that you are curious about, questions that could be answered through online and library research, interviewing or observation.
C. Then your proposal should offer a step-by-step description of the work plan, explaining in detail the process you think you will use to complete the project.
D. Include some description of what you expect to learn or discover from this project.

The more specific details you can provide in your proposal, the more likely it is you'll get the "green light" to move forward.
