What do I do and where do I look?

What do I do and where do I look?

There are many different ways you can conduct your research. For instance, school surveys are great to get some local or firsthand statistics on how your fellow students feel about some of the issues. Do they care about child labour? Do they think corruption in politics is just part of doing business? 

You could also try to interview people, such as members of charities and embassies, teachers that may have travelled overseas or perhaps someone from your local community.

Valuable sources

Documentaries and news can contain some really strong information and statistics. They can also provide useful case studies. All of this can be found in abundance on the internet. So too can podcasts, informative videos and other multimedia. 

Books and magazines can also be a great source of statistics and quotations relevant to motions (your school textbooks may even come in handy).
