What to do when you are stuck

Detroit is a special city, but it is just one city. If you are stalled in your research process, it is time to broaden your search terms. Try some of the following suggestions:

  • Instead of limiting your search to just Detroit, try searching for similar information on ANY U.S. metropolitan.
  • Try using the word "urban" in place of "Detroit" in your search.
  • Search for the type of institution instead of a specific one. (Ex: "urban public schools")

For example, this article about converting vacant lots in Philadelphia into park space could inform your essay about converting vacant lots in Detroit.
