6. A Seed to Love Reading, Writing, Analyzing, and Sharing Valuable Information
When your teacher asks you to research a topic that you want, think of topics that you find interesting. If you are into anime, for instance, take steps to know more about anime. Knowing about anime goes beyond merely watching it. If you read about anime, write about what you read, analyze the nature of anime, and then share your findings. That's only one order of actions taken by a researcher.
There are people who initially write what they know about a certain topic like space exploration, while others analyze a situation or an issue first before reading and writing about it. Some researchers use previous studies as a take-off point in doing further research about a topic, primarily to determine if their study or experiment will reach or replicate the same findings or conclusions.
I hope what I said has somehow answered your query. Otherwise, you might want to research further the connection between researching reading, writing, analyzing, and sharing one's knowledge with other people.
