In my Research Blog #6, I made the final decision to focus my project around the guiding question, “Why is divorce so common?” My past blogs and mind map led me to this decision, but this blog post was the specific turning point. At the end of it, I wrote:
“My guiding question has shifted from “Why is divorce so common” to “How does technology affect divorce rates” to “How does religion affect marriage” and back to the broader sense of what causes divorce.”
I had gone back and forth between topics because I felt that I had to remain in a certain bubble, where the rest of the class was focused on technology. But I found that I just wasn’t interested in that aspect, and it was more important to research what I wanted.
