How to Begin:
Start casual! Learn the easy stuff first. Change your research question as you read. Don't lock in before you know you can make your argument.
But don't forget to keep track as you go, even if it feels like you're not really even starting. There are 3 basic ways of keeping track of your research:
1. Take notes as you read.
2. Cite as you write.
3. Use EasyBib, NoodleTools, Google Docs Explore feature, or some other online tool to organize your research.
