Your research question: What did ----your topic----- demonstrate about Japan’s worldview before/during/after World War II?
EX: What did “Japanese women’s contributions in wartime” demonstrate about Japan’s worldview during World War II?
The question is intentionally broad so you can focus the question to fit your research. It is okay for the focus of your question to differ slightly from that of your group members.
Your response should not require checking your notes. Own this question -- internalize it; let it motivate your work -- and you will research and write with greater purpose and focus. Your eventual thesis will answer the question, and the paper will seek to prove your answer.
