Mapping Your Research Ideas

I highly recommend that you either make a list of questions or map our your questions to help you make sense of your research task. You will probably need to review class readings, lectures, and do some preliminary research to help you figure out a specific aspect of  the school-to-prison pipeline and potential solution for that particular aspect.
