Habits Journal: Going Down the Rabbit Hole
PART I: Go down the rabbit hole
1. Choose a detail from YOUR podcast topic and type it into Google. Press enter.
Type the basic words of your topic into the Google search engine. Press Enter. Everyone who
does this at the same time is likely to get very similar results. You might find a Wikipedia
page or a news article. We can call this ordinary research. It’s what you do next that
2. Now do your research.
Set aside at least a half an hour for exploratory research.
Begin by reading one of the articles or pages you find from this search. Next, find something
interesting on the page a detail, a word, a quotation, a reference, a name, etc., from the
article you read and then do another Google search.
3. Repeat. Repeat.
Read two or more of the recommended links. Then choose a phrase, a quotation, a reference,
or a footnote from the second set of works and do another Google search. Repeat. Repeat.
And repeat again, until youve burrowed down to an insight or a question that you yourself
Spend at least 30 minutes to 1 hour doing exploratory research on your topic.
PART II: Write journey and reflection
1. Write: Type a brief synopsis of your “journey.” (It doesn’t need to be in
complete sentences.) Tell me what words you searched and exactly which
webpages you explored.
2. Next, write a reflection. As you drilled down in your research, what choices
gave you genuine surprises? When did you experience moments of
extraordinary discovery? What sources did you most enjoy reading?
How To Submit
Include this rabbit hole journey in your Habits Journal and submit a PDF file.
Find Two Sources You Might Use
Once you get the hang of going down the rabbit hole, youll be on your way to
reading widely. Even so, it is quite possible to miss out important research that might
touch on your question. This is because major search engines rank their search results
with algorithms that reward popularity in one form or another.
And, in addition, everyone who conducts research has to contend with confirmation
bias, which means we are drawn to information that fits with our preconceptions.
So, to do compelling research, at some point your adventures have to take you off in a
direction you didnt expect. But how to get this to happen?
Turn to different search engines. Pick at least two of the following search engines
and search for research that relates to your topic. They deliver results that are quite
different from a plain vanilla search:
Pick Two and Research Your Topic:
Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/)
NewSchool library (https://guides.library.newschool.edu/az.php)
The Library of Congress (https://www.loc.gov/)
Your goal at this point is to find voices to engage with that aren’t repeating what
you’ve already discovered. You shouldnt be trying to back up your point. Instead,
you want to produce writing that enriches your readers understanding of the
complexity of your question.
Youll know youre moving in the right direction when you find new source material
that causes you to qualify the insights you articulated at the end of your rabbit hole
What To Submit
Your two sources in APA format.
A brief description of what you found interesting about these sources. (This can be
as short or as long as you’d like.)
