Compose a “Level 2 Research Question/ Writing Prompt” that provides detail, specificity, and focus to your inquiry, research and writing**. State your research questions in the introduction of your paper. Form the body of your paper by answering each research question, using references to the resources found in your research. Review the process and the resulting understandings in the conclusion of the paper (briefly review the issues, research questions, answers, and insights.) Level 1 Research Questions/Writing Prompts
