Section 3: Linear (Verbal) Frameworks

The interesting thing about this section is the realization that there are many ways to create topics for research.  Of course there is the pencil and paper brainstorming technique by jotting down words, maybe even creating an outline.  The Mind Map from the previous section proved to be a valuable tool as it allowed the connections of items.  Beyond the typical hierarchy connections could be looked at in many different directions.  This helped to narrow the focus and to broaden the research where appropriate.
