Researching data for a questionnaire

The struggle with teaching this lesson was getting the students to understand that they needed to know what they were looking for before deciding on the questions in the questionnaire. Also, having students reevaluate their questions was somewhat of a struggle. Making their survey important to use and finding topics that were interesting to them took longer than I had expected. I would take longer on the creating of a questionnaire. Some of the students just filled in the info. themselves. Additional resources are on the internet and I would spend more time having students research this instead of me showing them different surveys.
