Module 2: Synonyms and Related Terms

Once you have a research question, it’s almost time to start searching. One thing to keep in mind is that the terms that you’re using to explain your topic may not be the same ones a book or article author might use. To make sure you don’t miss any important articles or books, you should try to think of synonyms or related terms for your most important ideas.

Try the practice below.

1. Women a. Adolescents
2. Food b. America
3. Teenagers c. Climate Change
4. Global Warming d. Diet
5. Health e. Farming
6. United States f. Females
7. College g. Medicine
8. Agriculture h. University
