I knew Capstone was about a specific topic, but I didn’t know that we had to do questions inside of our main question. In my case, my main inquiry question is how does Nike help community’s and how can that teach kids the importance of being active? I had to do a lot of thinking to come up with my main inquiry question. My sub questions are:
What type of communities need help?
What can Nike do to help?
How can they be role models?
What type of activities get kids more active?
How can they teach kids skills that they will use in their lives?
How can Nike give to others besides by giving to schools?
I came up with these sub questions because these would help me answer my main question. I still have a lot of work to do, but I know that I will do well if I work hard. Coming up with sub questions is not easy. You have to think of questions that will answer only parts of your main, and all the answers combine will answer your main question.
We did a Where I’m From poem in our class and it was really fun. In case you don’t know what a Where I’m From Poem is, it’s something just about you. It is about all the important things from your past and present. You can make a Where I’m From Poem in a website which has an organizer which you put in what they tell you. Hope you enjoy the video.
Picking a topic for a Capstone is not easy. You have to think about a lot of things. You need a topic that will not bore you out. You need a topic that you don’t know to much about. You need a topic that will make you think. I choose Nike as my final topic, but at first, I wanted to do basketball. Then I wanted to do tennis, but I was really an expert on that. Nike was my third choice and I really wasn’t into that, but when I found that Nike donated to communities I was surprised. I thought that Nike only wanted to get money, so I did a lot of research and found many websites, I even found a Nike community store where I could learn more about Nike Community Impact foundation. I knew this topic would interest me the most. That is the reason I choose Nike for my Capstone topic. I am so exited for Capstone!
