ENGL 2089: Intermediate Composition (UCBA)

This guide supports the research assignments for ENGL 2089.

Drafting Your Inquiry Research Question

Inquiry-based research is a continuous process and is driven by open-ended research questions that haven't been answered previously. Developing a solid research question is a crucial part of inquiry-based research. The Draft an Inquiry Question video (2:35 minutes) provides some strategies for creating an inquiry research question.


  • Talk with your professor to determine if the inquiry research question meets the scope and scale of the assignment
  • Make sure you go through the research question approval process if required by your professor
