Use these four (4) steps to help you decide on the right topic for your papers and projects:
- Pick a topic suitable for a college level paper; use your textbook or classnotes for ideas
- Pick a topic you care to learn more information about; your interest will be reflected in your writing
- Pick a topic that matches the length of the paper you are writing; the shorter the paper - the more narrow the topic
- Browse the library for books and journal articles on your topic. This can help you narrow down or expand on a topic.
