1. Write “Things that I’m interested in” or “Things that are important to me” or “Things that I care about” in your central bubble on your paper or on bubbl.us.
2. Start coming up with as many things as you can that relate to whatever of the above three options you wrote in your central bubble.
3. Think of specific experiences coming off of those bubbles of things that you’re interested in/care about/are important to you.
4. Think about questions that you might have relating either to those specific experiences or to the categories themselves. These would be the questions that you might then like to research.
It might look something like the image above.
